AFS-3 is a distributed file system based upon prototypes developed at Carnegie Mellon University during the 1980s. AFS-3 heavily leverages Remote Procedure Calls (RPCs) as the foundation for its distributed architecture. In 2003, new RPCs were introduced into AFS-3 that provide for capability querying between file servers and cache managers. This memo provides a formal specification for that functionality, and provides analogous extensions to the volume server RPC interface.
