You can control how the FlexCache volume functions when connectivity between the caching and origin systems is lost by using the disconnected_mode and acdisconnected volume options.

The disconnected_mode volume option and the acdisconnected timeout, combined with the regular TTL timeouts (acregmax, acdirmax, acsymmax, and actimeo), enable you to control the behavior of the FlexCache volume when contact with the origin volume is lost.
