	<a class="citerefentry" href="samba.7.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">samba</span>(7)</span></a> suite.</p><p>The <code class="literal">vfs_cacheprime</code> VFS module reads chunks
	of file data near the range requested by clients in order to
	make sure the data is present in the kernel file data cache at
	the time when it is actually requested by clients. </p><p>The size of the disk read operations performed
	by <code class="literal">vfs_cacheprime</code> is determined by the
	cacheprime:rsize option. All disk read operations are aligned
	on boundaries that are a multiple of this size. Each range of
	the file data is primed at most once during the time the client
	has the file open. </p><p>This module is stackable.</p></div><div class="refsect1" title="OPTIONS"><a name="id266840"></a><h2>OPTIONS</h2><div class="variablelist"><dl><dt><span class="term">cacheprime:rsize = BYTES</span></dt><dd><p>The number of bytes with which to prime

	that all read operations are of size 1 megabyte (1048576 bytes),
	and aligned on 1 megabyte boundaries:

	a general-purpose readahead mechanism. It is intended for use
	only in very specific environments where disk operations must
	be aligned and sized to known values (as much as that is possible).
