As I commented in my posting, the log and metadata are on their own
partitions.  Which data file are you asking about above?  I admit to being
confused, as I apparently have log information in one partition, file
metatdata in another partition, and the actual files themselves (??) under
/usr/src/vicepa.  Perhaps an overall definition of terms would be
appropriate?

The /usr/coda/etc/vstab file reads thusly:

/coda:/dev/cfs0:cy.steve.net:/usr/coda/venus.cache:20000:1

Let me know what other information you may need.
