Filesystem reads resolved against File system cache or not RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, my question is more of a response to a troubleshooting session I'm executing using Process Monitor rather the tool itself. Our application is reported to read data from files which, when on the local system, might be resolved against the File System Cache but when the file is on a network share it is always retrieved over the network. This makes me suspect that remote files on network shares are never cached. I couldn't find them using the Sysinternals Rammap tool either. I've been trying to find a conclusive answer to my assumption but failed to locate any documentation that confirms this. Can anyone make a statement on this or point me out to an article that does explain the technicalities behind accessing files over the network?

    Thanks in advance.
