Options [--cache], [--ncache],[--silo], [--nsilo], [--pin], [--unpin] can be used together. Any combination of the options is equivalent to an "AND" operation. For examples, with [--ncache] and [--silo] options only the files on tape and not on disk will be listed. A file larger than 2MB is defined as a large file, files smaller than 2MB will not be backed up to the tape system and are not reported by the srmLs utility.
