[Gluster-devel] glusterfs as root filesystem

Sort of. I did use that but I could never get it to actually cache anything.
My reads never got quicker than the first one, no matter many times I called
the same files... But specifically I've heard talk from people asking about
using local storage for caching, which is not supported under the io-cache
translator. So I would use that if it became available, and if not, I'll
eventually have to figure out why io-cache isn't working.

I'm not on the gluster team, but you don't mean the io-cache translator?
