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


This builds both the flashcache.ko and 3 utilities.

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