Cache manager policy

When a project is over their High Quota limit the following data backup and deletion policies will be enforced.

/cache Backup policy:

  • Oldest files >1MB in size which satisfy the criterion backed up = No will be automatically copied to tape.

/cache Deletion policy:

  • Oldest files which satisfiy the criterion pin count = 0 AND backed up = Yes will be deleted.

Note: Since small files are not written to tape and deleted but there is a soft limit of 1 million files per user. We strongly recommend users store only large permanent files under /cache. If a project generates a lots of small files, please put them under /work or /volatile disk areas.
