Feature request - sequential cutoff

Post by Nick7 »

One thing I really miss in PrimoCache is option to specify sequential cutoff (like for example bcache has).
This is especially important for smaller cache drives, as it'll help prevent just one single big sequential read to push out most data out of cache.
This would also help issues like making backups, etc....

Would be really good to have this option!

Thank you for your suggestion! We do have the plan to support such feature in future.

Any news regarding this one?
It would help quite a lot with some scenarios.

Also, while at it, are there plans for some other algorithms instead of just LRU?

Made an account to say I would also really appreciate something like this, if I understand it correctly. This would generally mean that smaller files get preference over bigger files, right?
