I think it would be a pretty interesting idea. Obviously you would need to trust all the other clients writing into the cache, but that's probably feasible in this environment. A shared cache kept entirely in ram might grow fairly big, but it's not so expensive to get an 8GB or 16GB machine devoted to this. -- Martin _______________________________________________ ccache mailing list email@example.com https://lists.samba.org/mailman/listinfo/ccache
