Citrix PVS 7.1 and XenApp 7.6 Caching

I am new to our Citrix environment at work and trying to help work on a issue and trying to understand the following.

All of our Citrix server are VM's using PVS 7.1. Does PVS cache information i.e in memory or else where? Also 7.6 uses Flexcast I believe instead of IMA, any chances to the way audio is buffered or cached?

PVS will cache info on the target device. Look at the properties of the vDisks and you will see what cache option was selected. For PVS 7.1, the recommended usage is cache to device ram with overflow to disk.

The default policy settings are here:

By default, audio buffering is disabled:

Windows Media Redirection buffer size 5 seconds
 
Windows Media Redirection buffer size use Disabled
