Traditional caching policies are known to perform poorly
for storage server caches. One promising approach to
solving this problem is to use hints from the storage
clients to manage the storage server cache. Previous
hinting approaches are ad hoc, in that a predefined re-
action to specific types of hints is hard-coded into the
caching policy. With ad hoc approaches, it is difficult to
ensure that the best hints are being used, and it is diffi-
cult to accommodate multiple types of hints and multiple
client applications. In this paper, we propose CLient-
