An updated cachefilesd package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The cachefilesd package manages a kernel module that attempts to improve the performance of selected file systems by using local disk space to cache data read over the network.
- Prior to this update, cachefilesd used the wrong log level for cull info messages. As a result, the /var/log/messages file could become overloaded. This update reduces the messages to the debug level. Now, /var/log/messages no longer becomes overloaded.
- Prior to this update, cachefilesd depended on a specific version of the SELinux policy package. As a result, only the nominated version was allowed. This update permits the nominated version and any later versions. Now, the SELinux policy dependency works as expected.
All users of cachefilesd are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
