Cloud Storage Gateway provides a cache disk for each shared path. This topic describes how to manage the cache in the local file gateway console, including adding cache disks, deleting cache disks, and testing the speed of cache disks.

Prerequisites

  1. You have deployed the local file gateway console. For more information, see Deploy the local file gateway console.
  2. You have added cache disks. For more information, see Add disks.

Background information

Each file gateway share has a unique cache disk attached to it. To create multiple shares, you must create the same number of cache disks for the shares. You can upload data in a share to an Object Storage Service (OSS) bucket by using a cache disk. You can also download data from OSS buckets to a local device by using a cache disk.
