Enabling SSD Acceleration of RAID-F Pool
« on: June 06, 2016, 06:11:34 am »
Not been running FR for a while since my key got "upgraded" into "invalid" state due to a hardware change :-(

Enabling SSD Acceleration of RAID-F Pool

That is my aim, to use an SSD as the landing zone. If I made ALL my HDDs restricted volumes then the SSD becomes the default write location and I then need a script to move files from SSD to HDDs (which could be quite a fun exercise since the HDDs are restricted).

However, depending on how FR works it could be easier:

Consider: 2 Unique volumes allowed (one SSD, one HDD), Auto Folder Priority enabled (i.e. files go onto disks which have the folder already created first) and both drives have the same folder structure.

I assume Flexraid writes a new file to
A) The one with most free space, rather than...
B) The first drive in the list of Unique volumes, rather than...

However, if it did (B) then you could easily enable SSD acceleration by putting the SSD as the first volume in the Unique volume list.

I've noticed t-RAID offers SSD acceleration but RAID-F does not. Is this something that could be added (i.e the B scenario) ? ? ?

RAID-F will get the landing disk feature in future releases.

Cool.  Sounds like a good feature.
