NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     cached - monitor single bit secondary cache errors.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     cached [-s	size] [-S delay] [-fC] [-p priority]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     cached monitors the number	of single bit errors in	the secondary cache of
     each cpu. It reports the number of	single bit errors encountered on any
     cpu each time it runs.

     The -s size parameter determines the size of the cpu secondary cache in
     bytes.  If	no value is specified, the default value of 4194304 (4 MB) is

     The -S delay parameter indicates the amount of time to wait each time
     between examining the secondary caches. This delay	is in seconds and the
     default is	3600 seconds (one hour).  The -C option	must be	used for this
     option to mean anything useful.

     The -p priority parameter indicates the priority cached will be run at.
     The value can be in the range -20 to 20 with -20 being the	highest
     priority and 20 being the lowest.	The priority defaults to 10.

     The -f parameter indicates	that cached should run on all enabled cpus.
     Normally cached does not run on restricted	cpus.

     The -C parameter indicates	that cached should run continuously, sleeping
     and running the check of secondary	caches forever.	 If this option	is not
     specified,	the program runs once and then exits.

OVERVIEW    [Toc]    [Back]

     cached uses the R10000 performance	registers at the user level to monitor
     the number	of single bit cache errors. Single bit errors are
     automatically corrected by	the hardware. If the secondary cache has
     numerous single bit errors, there is a possibility	that these could turn
     into multi-bit errors which are fatal for the system. Monitoring the
     number of single bit errors provides a means of warning the user early
     enough so that the	cpu module containing the cache	may be replaced.

     cached runs at a very low priority	by default so as not to	interfere with
     the normal	usage of the machine.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     cached is run as a	cron job and can be turned off or controlled using the
     diagsetup script.

     To	avoid disruptions to real-time usage, cached normally does not run on
     isolated or restricted cpus. This can be overridden by using the -f flag.

     /usr/diags			the diag user's	home directory
     /usr/diags/bin/cached	location of cached executable
     /usr/diags/bin/diagsetup	script to control the periodic running of
				testfpu	and cached

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     This command works	only on	MIPS R10000 systems.
