    Hello i have a simple question.
    I want to buy the server.app because it has nice options for me like the TimeMachine Backups and the Icloud Caching, ...
    But i have a question about it.
    The Icloud Cashing is this the total Icloud content that will be cached on the server?
    Photos, Videos, documents, spreadsheets,...?

    Because our video's we open on the iphones that are on the icloud service sometimes takes long to load and would be nice if it's cached at our home server(macmini) and will be opened immediately.

    Thnx in advance.

    Via command line you can limit the size of "iCloud data" to be cached. Other items such as applications, books, music you can not fine tune limit. You only set the total size for all of the cache (which includes iCloud data).

    Hope this helps to answer.

    Hello,

    I don't want to limit the cache. Have space enough. My only question is if the video's i make with the iphone and will be putted on the icloud service will be cached also.
    Because they only speak about photos and documents but i have no clue if the video's in the photos app also counts.

    I have searched the internet high and low and only found this:
    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204675

    OS X
    • OS X updates
    • Mac App Store (OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.4 or later is recommended)
    • Other software updates distributed by Apple (including updates to iTunes for OS X and printer drivers)
    • GarageBand downloadable content
    • Third-party apps from the Mac App Store and their updates
    • Internet Recovery OS image downloads (OS X Mavericks and later)
    • iCloud data caching (photos and documents) for OS X El Capitan v10.11 and later
    iOS 7 and later and Apple TV
    • iOS updates (over the air)
    • Apple TV updates (over the air)
    • iOS apps, Apple TV apps, and app updates
    • On-demand resources support for iOS 9.1 and later - On-demand resources are not cached for Apple TV
    • iCloud data caching (photos and documents) for iOS 9 and later
    • iTunes U course materials from the iOS App Store and iBooks Store, as well as uploaded instructor materials such as audio, video, iWork, and iBooks Author files
    • Certain mobile assets, such as Siri high quality voices, language dictionaries, and more
    Country Restrictions
    • Not all content is cached in all regions.
    • As of December 2013, iTunes downloads are not cached in Brazil, Mexico, China, or Portugal. iBooks downloads are not cached in Canada.
    • iTunes downloads might not be cached if a client's IP address isn't associated with your iTunes Store region.



    Based on that I have a feeling the system does not cache "videos". Perhaps this will be added in the future? It's only my speculation as I have not yet tested it...
