License : Everything in flashcache components released under GPL v2.

Update : Added the flashcache-wt directory, which contains a (separate) module for a write through flashcache. For more details, look at flashcache-wt/README.

Building Flashcache :

Update : Vadim Tkachenko (with help from Mohan), ported Flashcache to later Linux releases. We now have built Flashcache on 2.6.18, 2.6.20 and 2.6.27-32. We have tested Flashcache on 2.6.18, 2.6.20, 2.6.27 and 2.6.32.

You'll need the entire kernel source tree in order to build flashcache.

At the top directory, run

make KERNEL_TREE=

This builds both the flashcache.ko and 3 utilities.

flascache-sa-guide.txt has details on how to create and load flashcache volumes.
