Projects / readahead-list


readahead-list allows users to load files into the page cache before they are needed, to accelerate program loading. It improves on the existing readahead by taking the name of a file with the items to load, instead of requiring the arguments being passed as parameters. Additionally, it contains a tool (filelist-order) to optimize the order of the file list in several possible ways.

    Release Notes: This release cleans up processing to always exclude sockets, FIFOs, devices, and directories, which this prevents some odd bugs like hangs on FIFOs. A bug where -d displayed the version instead of debug information has been fixed.
