Defer Write - Daily and global stats

Post by olivier »

Hello to all.
And first of all, congratulations for this amazing piece of software that PrimoCache is.
I've been playing with hardware and software for 25+ years now, and all I can say is that it's been forever since I have been this interested in a software.

I have a minor suggestion to propose.
I have decided to get PrimoCache especially for its defer write ability.
In my mind, using defer write was a clever way to make my cacheless-SSD last longer.
Of course, I could have bought a more expensive (one with cache, or one with NVMe) SSD, but:
1. it would have been more expensive,
2. in the case of NVMe, it would have been limited (see Windows HMB)
3. it would have been less flexible (I currenty run on a 1.1GB of Buffer defer L1 cache)
The point is, PrimoCache saves me around 40% of writes. So, it makes my SDD last longer. And I thank you for that.
Would it be possible to have a daily stat, a weekly stat, ... a popup at the launch of the application that proudly states something like "congratulations. Thanks to Primocache, you save 40% of your writes. That is 15GB, or 3 months of life expentancy"
I think this would reinforce the customer satisfaction. Something like "Man, I'm so happy to have bought this software. I keep making money thanks to it!"

There would also be a great thing to add, it's global stats.
Let's imagine that on a monthly basis, all the PrimoCache clients send the amount of saved writes to a server. Then, you could be able to state "We already savec 123TB of writes. That's 52 SSD drives. Or 46t of CO2"
Of course, sending this data would have to be validated by the customer, but I think this would be a great stat for you to display.

All right, have this suggestion or not, do what you want, but once again, congratulations for this software.

Cheers from France,
Olivier
