        I've been using this scheme since two month ago,
but I can't understand how it works, specially when some
of the File Systems I'm using seems to fill up.

        It seems that disk space for each directory/File System
must be equal size in order to work correctly.

        What I would like is to use a bunch of free space and
aggregate them. But as far as it's working right now I am unable to
use all available space.

        Right now I have this configuration:

cache_swap 1250
cache_dir /www/new-cache
cache_dir /www/secondary-cache-1
cache_dir /www/secondary-cache-2
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/sd2a 1000502 404142 546334 43% /www
/dev/sd0g 527887 380021 121471 76%
/dev/sd1h 446399 374987 49092 88%

        Note that I'm using cache_swap at 1250Kb. If I use what
I want: (1000+527+446) then it fills /www/secondary-cache-2 and never
goes past 1200Kb.

        With current configuration it does not exceed from 1000Kb +- 100Kb.

        How could I use all the space I have?

        Thank you all in advance for yor help.
