Cachemaster is similar to VMTOUCH, but with more functions. Such as kick page cache, warmup/readahead data, lock data in mem, stat page cache, stat page cache in realtime mode, by file or directory~ Personally, I think the most usefule function is real-time-statistic of page cache. You can see the page cache thrashing when kernel do page reclaim…

By file or directory~

##Examples

###Stat page cache of file

-bash-3.2$ ./cachemaster -s -f data
Stat:data size:488M cached:488M

###Stat page cache of directory

-bash-3.2$ ./cachemaster -s -d mydir/

###Lock in mem of file in daemon

-bash-3.2$ ./cachemaster -l -f data -m
-bash-3.2$ ps xf | grep cachemaster | grep -v grep
28279 ? SLs 0:00 ./cachemaster -l -f data -m

###Lock in mem of directory

-bash-3.2$ ./cachemaster -l -d mydir/
Lock mydir//file1 succeed, size:488M
Lock mydir//file2 succeed, size:488M
Lock mydir//child/file3 succeed, size:488M

###Lock in mem of directory in daemon

-bash-3.2$ ./cachemaster -l -d mydir/ -m
-bash-3.2$ ps xf | grep cachemaster | grep -v grep
28694 ? SLs 0:00 ./cachemaster -l -d mydir/ -m

###Real time stat of file(-i is interval, default 1s)

-bash-3.2$ ./cachemaster -r -f data
file:data
time pageCount inCache change
[2103-8-5 16:03:14] 125000 125000 125000

[2103-8-5 16:03:17] 125000 125000 0

###Real time stat of directory(-i is interval, default 1s)

-bash-3.2$ ./cachemaster -r -d mydir/ -i 0.5
file:mydir/
time pageCount inCache change
[2103-8-5 16:05:12] 375000 375000 375000

[2103-8-5 16:05:15] 375000 375000 0

###Real time stat of directory(-s suppress the unchanged line)

-bash-3.2$ ./cachemaster -r -d mydir/ -i 0.5 -S
file:mydir/
time pageCount inCache change
[2103-8-5 16:10:52] 375000 375000 375000

###Warmup/Readahead of file

##Help

Usage:./cachemaster [Option] [File] ...
-c Clear Page Cache.
-l Lock file into memory.
-r Real Time Stat of Page Cache.
-s Stat of Page Cache.
-w Read ahead to page cache, for warmup.
-f Operation on a file.
-d Operation on a directory.
-m Lock in daemon, only used with -l.
-i Interval when in real time stat.
-c -s -r -l -w is mutual with each other; -f is mutual with -d
-S Suppress the unchanged line, only used with -r.
Example:
./cachemaster -c -f file_name | Clear cache of a file
./cachemaster -c -d dir_name | Clear cache of a direcroty
./cachemaster -s -f file_name | Stat cache of a file
./cachemaster -s -d dir_name | Stat cache of a direcroty
./cachemaster -r -f file_name | Stat real time cache of a file
./cachemaster -r -d dir_name | Stat real time cache of a direcroty
./cachemaster -l -f file_name | Lock file
./cachemaster -l -d dir_name | Lock direcroty
./cachemaster -w -f file_name | Warmup file
./cachemaster -w -d dir_name | Warmup direcroty
./cachemaster -l -f -m file_name | Lock file in daemon
./cachemaster -l -d -m dir_name | Lock direcroty in daemon
