[sheepdog-users] Object Cache and Gateway Mode

I have another question about object cache...

Im using sheepdog with a gateway sheep for qemu connections.

When enabling the object cache inside the virtual machines,
the cache-directory of gateway sheep starts filling.

But is it possible to limit the size of the space used for
the object cache?

I have only a small partition for the gateway sheep, if it
is filled with cached object, the gateway stops working and
gives a "No space left on device" message.

I could resize this partition for the moment, but as far as
I understand at the moment, the corner case means, that the
object cache must hold all objects of the cluster. So the
cache partition must be as big as the rest of the cluster...
