Re: Decreased speed with PrimoCache task

Guys... would you like to explain one more thing to me? Why is the cache hit rate decreasing instead of increasing? Weird. No changes made and I've seen 64, another time 40 and now just 14% and going lower... from 20 to 14 in 10 minutes :shifty: Settings are 10GB L1 automatic r/w cache, block size 4...

Re: Decreased speed with PrimoCache task

Does disabled Windows prefetching and indexing impact PrimoCache L1 (or L2 cache for that part) caching? These two functionalities are disabled on my PC and it's something I'm always doing right after re-installation of a Windows.

Re: Decreased speed with PrimoCache task

Did you test them multiple times? Sometimes benchmark results vary much, especially when the speed is lower than 200MB/s. But if you use L2 to speed up HDDs, it will definitely speed up HDDs if read data is from L2 cache. Yes, I did it many times. The results were always the same. As the L2 cache h...

Re: Decreased speed with PrimoCache task

I have 64GB of RAM installed here, and it works beautifully with high-use apps and Primocache (a 34GB L1 does nicely on the system/app drive). So yes, I'd recommend that configuration if you can afford it and want your hit rate with Primocache to increase. Sounds like the larger SSD would be a good...

Re: Decreased speed with PrimoCache task

It's a "my files" partition loaded with documents, pictures, music, a lot of application .exe install files and game image .iso files, NO movies. 90% of all "single" file on this partition is below 100MB, game images are the only "big" files on this partition but I'm us...

Re: Decreased speed with PrimoCache task

If it will not show any performance gains in benchmarks, why it decreased in benchmarks then? I can't tell the real performance is better though. Imo it's decreased too but need more time to check it.

Decreased speed with PrimoCache task

I've been testing the latest PrimoCache about the whole trial period, and it looks like I'm getting better performance without this software. Can someone explain to me what's wrong? I don't believe it should look like that. This is how it looks when the PrimoCache task is paused: HDD.jpg This is how...

Re: [2019-12-31] PrimoCache 3.2.0 and 4.0.0 alpha released!

Any plans on adding an exclude/include functionality for which caching should be stopped when running any of the .exe processes on the excluded list? Would be nice to tick for stats reset, like I'm running now by .bat command for certain programs: rxpcc.exe pause -a -s rxpcc.exe resume -a -s rxpcc.e...
