NAME

dune-cache - Manage the shared artifacts cache

SYNOPSIS

dune cache [OPTION]... [ACTION]

DESCRIPTION

Dune is able to share build artifacts between workspaces. dune cache-daemon is a daemon that runs in the background and manages this shared cache. For instance, it makes sure that it does not grow too big and try to maximise sharing between the various workspaces that are using the shared cache.

The daemon is automatically started by Dune when the shared cache is enabled. You do not need to run this command manually.

ACTIONS

start starts the daemon if not already running.

stop stops the daemon.

trim removes oldest files from the cache to free space.
