Cache process manage the local server cache’s directory.
Notice: in order to not delete unsafe archives, Cache compute archive’s scores using the same algorithm as serv (see serv) based on image’s score provided by /etc/mediatex/mdtx-COLL/servers.txt (see servers.txt).
Cache use 3 options defined into the /etc/mediatex/mdtx.conf (see mdtx.conf) file:
the maximum size that limit growing operations into the cache
the minimum time a file notified to USER (see Who) has to be keept into the cache
the time to live of a USER query is kept into the ~mdtx/md5sums/mdtx-COLL.md5 (see mdtxCOLL.md5) file
Process conceptual model:
from extract (see extract): allocate place into the cache.
