Cache reset after power outage

So I had a power outage and my cache reset (L-2)
Is that normal?

Edit:
should I turn off my L-1 cache because I don't want my boot drive to get corrupted

Re: PrimoCache is making my hard drives slower..

Why would I want to turn on write when I also might just want my read speeds to be boosted And my write is 0% because I don't want to reduce my SSD's lifespan That's just for checking the L2 performance in Benchmark tools like CrystalDiskMark, otherwise their testing data will not be cached and you...

Re: PrimoCache is making my hard drives slower..

By default, PrimoCache set the cache poliy to "100% read" for level-2 cache. That is, level-2 cache only cache read-write and ignore write-data. This is best policy for most real scenarios. However, this default setting will show no performance boost in benchmark testings. If you want to check the ...

Re: PrimoCache is making my hard drives slower..

For your specific scenario, the test parameters matter a lot. If you have a test size larger than your cache size, it will "spill over" and go to urgent writes, which drops the performance of the target drive. Additionally, how full are your two cached drives (1TB + 500GB)? I typically have a cache...

Good info and write-up, thanks. Seems like a very strong L2 performer.
Very expensive though

There is no need to free up cache. PrimoCache will automatically discard old cached data and cache new data.
When does it do that?
Because I've waited about 30/20 minutes and it only discarded about 10MBs of cache

Re: I need help

By default, L2 cache is set to 100% read only and only caches read-data in order not to wear SSD too much. If you use L2 cache to speed up writing with defer-write, there might be much write wear on L2 SSD devices and may reduce the SSD lifespan. So should I turn off deferred write and put it to 10...

I need help

Hello! I'm new to primocache and I wanted to ask how do I free my cache up because I put up 32GB of L-2 cache and it's full within an hour (without me playing any heavy game) which is crazy (Read&Write) Should I just increase the capacity and if I do wouldn't it just get full again or should I use F...
