Can the cacheloader process stay alive and keep rebuilding or updating the cache metadata?

I can’t think of any scenario, you’d want that – care to explain why you’d like this behaviour?

    As I understand, during startup, the cache loader process scans the files in

    stay alive, so that it can maybe periodically rebuild/update the in-memory
    metadata by monitoring files in the corresponding directory?
