Configuration Details:

Option Name:cache_swap_low
Replaces:
Requires:
Default Value:cache_swap_low 90
Suggested Config:

	The low-water mark for AUFS/UFS/diskd cache object eviction by
	the cache_replacement_policy algorithm.

	Removal begins when the swap (disk) usage of a cache_dir is
	above this low-water mark and attempts to maintain utilization
	near the low-water mark.

	As swap utilization increases towards the high-water mark set
	by cache_swap_high object eviction becomes more agressive.

	The value difference in percentages between low- and high-water
	marks represent an eviction rate of 300 objects per second and
	the rate continues to scale in agressiveness by multiples of
	this above the high-water mark.

	Defaults are 90% and 95%. If you have a large cache, 5% could be
	hundreds of MB. If this is the case you may wish to set these
	numbers closer together.

	See also cache_swap_high and cache_replacement_policy
