VMware Staff engineer Sivaprasad Govindankutty has produced a very detailed technical white paper that provides a thorough understanding of how the content-based read cache (CBRC)
functions with vSphere 5.0, and how it is integrated in VMware View 5.1. It will also provide a detailed explanation of configuring View Storage Accelerator (also known as Host Caching) for View desktops.
Sivaprasad goes into details about CBRC design covering topics like the VSCSI Filter implementation, Digest files, Journaling and CBRC parameters. The paper is a MUSR READ.
