Re: L2 SSD Raid-0 Cache

Do you think 1GB L1 Cache -> C: is useless in my case?

L2 Cache on D: is now 110MB
Does that mean that I am still ok?

Re: L2 SSD Raid-0 Cache

You may check PrimoCache statistics, basically "Total Read", "Cached Read", "L2Storage Read", "Cache Hit Rate", "Free Cache (L1)" and "Free Cache (L2)". For the meaning of these terms, please see https://www.romexsoftware.com/en-us/primo-cache/terms-performance.html If free cache is larger than 32M...

Re: Max L2 Cache Size

Do you plan to increase total L2 cache supported?
Maybe to 4 tb?

New Raid controller and combine with 2x128GB SSD L2 Cache Also what do you think is the ultimate block size for my Raid10 ? Finally,...

Re: L2 SSD Raid-0 Cache

Nice. Many thanks. I configured it as you suggested and I already see speed benefit. But I have some questions. When I try to create L2 cache for drive D: using Windows Raid-0 on 2x128GB SSD, it doesn't give me the option for 4K block. Only 8k and up. For 8K the overhead is 5,52GB. I added addition ...

Re: L2 SSD Raid-0 Cache

Do you suggest to use 8GB L1 + 2x128GB L2, both on drive D:? If yes then shall I create two tasks or one?
Also you didn't answer if you suggest me to use read only L2 or read/write? I don't have ups on server.

Many thanks

Re: L2 SSD Raid-0 Cache

Hot data is around 200-250 GB (League of Legends / Fortnite / CSGO / PUBG - APEX)
So what do you recommend?
Use 8GB L1 Cache for C: as read only ?
Use 2x 128GB Plextor M5Pro in software Raid-0 mode for L2 Cache as read only or read/write?
What block size? Considering that RAid-0 has 4k.

thanks again.
