I don't understand: if I cannot make a server with > 9gb of data, how can I
have a 6gb cache?
I've set my cache to 20mb, for mail servers and webservers. Do you think
I've to increase it? My codafs are all of 9gb of data.
And if it so, will be sufficient stopping services, stopping venus, modifing
the conf, and restart all?

Yep. It's why I asked it.

Not a bad idea... at least, we can shut down venus, modify the option, and
restart it with --init to be sure the all will be in the right place.
