Subject [users@httpd] Disk-based Caching tmp files
Date Mon, 07 May 2007 20:17:17 GMT
Could someone explain why the CacheRoot on a front end proxy server (httpd-2.2.4, windows 2003)
is filling up with so many files like aptmpZzwkBP at the root level? My understanding of the
docs is that this shouldn't happen: "The overall aim of this technique [CacheDirLevels &
CacheDirLength] is to reduce the number of subdirectories or files that may be in a particular
directory, as most file-systems slow down as this number increases." -

The disk cache configuration:

CacheRoot   "C:/webcache"
CacheEnable disk /
CacheDirLevels 3
CacheDirLength 1

Any enlightment would be appreciated.
