i think  it is page cache.
my case is in virualization environment,
because  vm's disk image is much larger than system's cache, i want to know when many vms are running  if system cache hit rate is very  low?   if there is a need to  seek for other way to suit virtualization.
system's default cache mechanism does not care about virtualization.
