[Gluster-devel] would an io-disk-cache be feasible?

I'm wondering how complicated it woul be to create a translator that 
would cache data on the local disk. Especially in our use case I think 
this would reduce the gluster and network load immense. But I might be 

What is special in our setup is, that the files we put on the cluster do 
never change; some get deleted somtimes, though, but seldom. Most of 
them stay forever, writes are low, reads are high. I still have no good 
idea about how often a "cache hit" might occur, but surely some of the 
files will have them. The files itself are rather small (images of some 
kb or small text files of only a few 10 bytes).

Thanks, Sascha
