Helix Core Virtual File Service (P4VFS) Guide

P4VFS is a client-side agent that reduces the wait time for file delivery from the Helix Core Server to a client. Only file metadata is delivered on the initial transfer, such as a p4 sync command or P4V's "Get Latest". P4VFS downloads a specific file's content only if you perform an action that requires it.

Learn About P4VFS and how to use it.

If you organization wants to develop its own custom version of the P4VFS functionality, a software developer should read Optional: custom development.

The P4VFS feature is in Technical Preview. Features offered in Technology Preview are experimental and not guaranteed to always work as expected. If you have feedback and functionality suggestions, email [email protected].
