Summary: minimize caching effects
The nocache tool tries to minimize the effect an application has on
the Linux file system cache. This is done by intercepting the open and
close system calls and calling posix_fadvise with the POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED
parameter. Because the library remembers which pages (ie., 4K-blocks of
the file) were already in file system cache when the file was opened,
these will not be marked as "don't need", because other applications
might need that, although they are not actively used (think: hot standby).
