dd reads a remote file into
of=/dev/null, does data get page-cached by Linux?
I executed the command a few times and the transfer rate stays consistent. This may indicate that the file is not being cached during read; I'd like to confirm.
dd if=/nfs/sample.txt of=/dev/null
I checked a related question and did not see an answer.
