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

I'm guessing that the Alpha release is going very well. Will you go straight to a final, or will you introduce changes and do another Alpha, or make it a Beta?

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

Is it the case that that, while using the 4.0 Alpha, that the L2 cache can't be shared between two Cache tasks? No, 4.0 alpha doesn't change this. A L2 storage volume can be used by 16 cache tasks. You may specify a part of the L2 storage volume (by setting L2 cache size) for one cache task, and Pr...

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

Is it the case that that, while using the 4.0 Alpha, that the L2 cache can't be shared between two Cache tasks? I use two cache tasks because I prefer a very high delayed write with one of my drives. I get a bit of "urgent" write activity to that drive, and I'm hoping that an L2 cache would deal wit...

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

I'm trying out the Alpha, and it wasn't until I uninstalled it, after rebooting and even later trying the new regular release, and then fresh installing it, was PrimoCache able to "see" some of my drives as being available to be used as an L2 cache. After I first installed this Alpha on top of the o...

Re: Enable deferred-writes causes crashing

I second the motion for a screenie of your settings. There used to be a glitch in a Batman game that crashed your system if it had less than 16 GB of ram. That has me wondering if, as an experiment, you have enough ram to use PrimoCache while allowing Windows 16 GB of ram for itself and programs to ...

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

Very nice, thank you. I'm interested in "2. Flush level-1 deferred write-data to level-2 cache when level-1 cache is full.", as that could be a way to really turbocharge a system with several spinners, SSDs, and optionally even access to a dedicated NVMe SSD partition, or even the whole drive, as a ...

Re: Cache task volumes specs disappeared

IIRC that's normal, and it happens to me as well when the Windows OS gets a version bump. I guess it's a case of "better safe than sorry".
