Using lfu

Using lfu

Post by David Lawrence Oppenheim » Wed, 08 Feb 1995 23:55:38

I recently picked up the program lfu from the net, and plan to start using
it (instead of rdist) to keep some NFS-mounted files on my machine in sync
with copies on local disk. (Actually, about 750 MB of files.) Until now I
had been using rdist.

The lfu man page explains the syntax of the lfu command files pretty clearly,
but does not provide any example command files. I was wondering if anyone who
is using lfu might be able to send me a sample command file, perhaps the one
they are using to do their own file synchronization.

Thanks very much for any help.

        We have recently purchased couple of IBM Jukeboxes.
        3995 Optical Library Subsystem - models A63 -> 1 optical drive
        and 16 optical disks ( OD's )

        The device drivers for the jukeboxes are also there

crw-rw-rw-   1 root     system    23,  1 Jan 26 11:49 ribmjb1

        i also have the necessary structures to manipluate or move the OD's
        in the jukebox.

        AIX pictoria 2 3 004133887500

        Here comes my problem

i move the OD to the optical drive and want to mount the OD as
a file system.

Anybody out there has any idea of how it can be done ?

        because on SUN ( using Pinnacle jukeboxes ) all has to be done
        is to

        1. move the OD to the optical drive
        2. do newfs only once
        3. mount ( a block device is provided in /dev )
        4. write your data
        5. umount

        the above process can be repeated for any OD and also the mount point is only one.

        please reply to my email directly

        thanks a ton

        sorry if i am posting in a wrong new group




1. AutoCache & lfu: how to efficiently allocate client disks

We are configuring a set of SPARCstations with 200Meg local disks.  I read
about two programs which attempt to make local disks caches of most-recently
used read-only files (binaries) over NFS, "lfu" and "AutoCache."

I have ftp'd lfu from, but I can't find AutoCache.  Can
anyone tell me if it is available via FTP, a commercial product, or what?
