Re: Double Intel Optane 32GB drives as Level-2 Cache Storage with PrimoCache possible?

If you use storage spaces to create a spanned disk instead it will just show up as a single drive. Don't think Raid-0 is necessary for this unless you want to double the write speed but it's the read speed that matters for L2 cache.

Re: L2 cache and data not filled in again once it's out

Bug doesn't seem to affect me if I have writes enabled too on the L2 cache, maybe the reason the bug doesn't affect L1 cache?

Re: Compressed L1 cache

I did some basic speed testing with it on my ryzen 2600@stock. It can easily saturate 7200rpm and sata3 3 bandwidth with moderate cpu load, copying a compressed virtual disk from the 7200rpm to the ssd drive went between 300-400Mb/s(compared to the native 200Mb/s read speed of the hard disk). Decomp...

Re: Compressed L1 cache

I just realized windows 10 has a new disk compression called CompactOS, which isn't ntfs compression it has new and updated compressioin schemes. I guess using compactOS to compress certain folders would mean the cached data would also be compressed, which means this feature basically already exists...

Re: How to optimize my settings for best performances ?

Yeah the NVME would most likely be slightly faster and I wouldn't worry about having a big L1 cache size too much, because of the high amount of data the games drive reads the L1 cache wouldn't be big enough to get a decent hitrate unless you dedicated maybe 8Gb to it which is too much I'd say. Keep...

Compressed L1 cache

Would this be possible? I know zram on linux can compress ram contents to around 30% of original size at tremendous speed but I'm not sure if the data primocache caches can be compressed that much?

Re: How to optimize my settings for best performances ?

Those settings sound good for your configuration. As for the L1 cache size you want it as big as you can get without hitting the pagefile.sys, so try it for a couple of days with 2Gb and if you can see there's no pagefile.sys activity maybe raise it to 3-4Gb. I have 16Gb ram and use a 2Gb L1 cache, ...

Re: How to optimize my settings for best performances ?

I would use Average mode for defer writes, writes data at a slower rate so as to not interfer with reads so much and if the write buffer does overflow it's a little faster to use your pc with average. Intelligent or idle flush waits before your comp is idle before flushing data so it can build up so...

Re: How to optimize my settings for best performances ?

defered writtes will increase the write iops 10x+ and also keep your disk mostly idle for writes so it can concentrate 100% on reads. If you're L2 cache gets full newly read data will just replace the least used data already in your L2 cache, nothing to worry about. As for the block size for best pe...

Re: How to optimize my settings for best performances ?

Settings look pretty good, only change I would make is to enable defer write with 10sec latency average mode and limit writes to 10% of your L1 cache instead of shared read/write.
