As I understand, during startup, the cache loader process scans the files in
the defined proxy-cache-path directories, and builds up the
in-memory-metadata. Once the metadata is built-up, the cache loader process

Is there any mechanism by which, this cache loader process can be made to
stay alive, so that it can maybe periodically rebuild/update the in-memory
metadata by monitoring files in the corresponding directory?
