I have a couple of new blades with local SSD drives.
I installed 5.5 and activated the vFRC.
I gave a couple of GB of SSD to the host caching portion of the vFRC and I need to know if it is used and how.
I know how to get stats for the vFRC but not for the SSD space allocated to the host caching..
When you browse to the datastore used, you should see .vswp files appearing.
This can be done through a script as well, something like this for example
$ds = Get-Datastore -Name YourLocalSSDDatastore
New-PSDrive -Location $ds -Name DS -PSProvider VimDatastore -Root "\" | Out-Null
Get-ChildItem -Path 'DS:\' -Recurse -Include '*.vswp' | Select Name,FolderPath,Length,LastWriteTime
Remove-PSDrive -Name DS -Confirm:$false

But from what I see, the process does not create a visible datastore.
I cannot browse the space I gave to the caching.
I know that if I create the host caching with the Thick Client in COnfiguration, Software, Hostcaching... Then I see the SSD as a datastore, but when I create it by the Web Client and the VFRC, it asks me for a % of VFRC to use as cache and does not create a datastore,
