Files read from NFS instead of fscache when also in pagecache

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



I noticed some strange behaviour of fscache with kernel 6.4.x in combination with NFS (v4.2) and the pagecache.

I have multiple clients mounting an NFS v4.2 file system from a server and caching the data locally using fscache. After booting the clients, most data is served from fscache and only a few requests hit the NFS server. But after some minutes of operation (which typically includes a lot of cyclic data reading for us), fewer and fewer files are served from fscache and most are served by the NFS server. It seems that this has something to do with the files being also in the pagecache. If I periodcally drop the pagecache with "echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches", then most of the files are served from fscache again.

Is this a known problem? If not, do you have any suggestion how I can try to find the root cause?

Thank you in advance!
