Complementing BCache, Flashcache, and DM-Cache, the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) has another new cache method for Linux systems.

LVM now has built-in caching support built atop DM-Cache so that logical volumes can be turned into cache devices. Those curious about LVM's cache feature can checkout Richard Jones' blog for a wealth of information and early tests of using the LVM Cache feature.
