Re: How to make L2 cache persistent?

When cache space is full of data, PrimoCache will replace old cached data by new data based on certain algorithms. So far PrimoCache cannot stick cache data for specified folders/files. In future we may support this. Thanks.

Re: CHIA and PrimoCache

using a L2 cache from Primocache is basically the same as using the L2's SSD as the Temp plot drive. Not exactly. You can share one SSD for more plotting tasks at the same time with PrimoCache. For eg. K=33, you need about 521G temp space for each plotting. So a 2TB SSD can support for 4 parallel p...

Re: [2021-01-30] PrimoCache 4.1.0 released!

It was 120 seconds AFAIK, but we have to wait for primocache dev to get definitive answer. It's correct. Flushing ~10-20 GB at times to Raid5 (3x 8 TB) and it kills my array while writing 450 MB/s (flushing). If I could limit flushing speed to ~100 MB/s, this would still be fast enough and wouldn't...

Re: CHIA and PrimoCache

I currently can't get any of the write modes, other than native, to write in idle read time (when the compute task kicks in). Despite being listed as native+, and regardless of the defer-write time, these write modes refuse to write until the buffer is full and it panic's. For chia mining, 8GB L1 f...

In most scenarios, native mode + a proper latency should be enough. Reduce latency to avoid the urgent write.

Re: CHIA and PrimoCache

Would be interested to hear others' thoughts on it as well, see if anyone has any real world use cases where Primocache would actually make a noticeable difference in plot times. We have already received some feedbacks from customers, saying that they can do more plotting at the same time. Usually ...

Re: CHIA and PrimoCache

What happens, if a block is requested from the disk which hasn't been written yet, I guess it will then be served directly from L1 cache (RAM), correct? Yes. I guess the only thing left for this to be perfect for chia would be to be able to fine-tune what PrimoCache considers the machine/disk/cpu b...
