Negative. At mining start, I can dump the initial ~35GB (takes around 2 minutes iirc) to the SSD with 4GB L1 + 10 second latency, without urgent writes.Support wrote: ↑Fri May 28, 2021 4:00 pmFor chia mining, 8GB L1 for defer-write is too small. Otherwise you need to reduce latency to avoid "urgent write".Audionut wrote: ↑Wed May 26, 2021 12:44 pm 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.
As first my screenshot above shows, if I enable ANY of the write modes other than native, it refuses to flush the L1 while there is CPU load, until the cache is full and then it panics.
edit: If I understand correctly, primocache combines the data, writes out at the block/cluster size, and trims as it goes along. I expect this to have a noticeable positive affect on SSD life, which will be especially useful for chia mining.
