Direct Storage

Post by ianmozzy »

Hello
I have been trying to find out how primocache works with direct storage.
I searched and found a few posts from about a year ago which had little useful information.

My main computer is dual boot windows/linux.
Windows is only used for gaming. Presently windows 10 but may be upgrading to 11.

Primocache is presently used to cache game files locally.

Games are becoming much larger. When unreal engine 5 games are out, will probably be very big.

So storing the games on slower drives using a cache is the cost effective option for me.
The question is - does primocache work well using direct storage and L2 cache data?


I have an old machine as a server, specifically proxmox. On there is a truenas virtual machine.
The plan is to down the track store games on a very large sparse ISCSI drive and use primocache as block store cache software.
Of course it is only useful if it supports direct storage in the long term.

Is there any useful information on this?

Thanks

I'm sorry but we haven't tested Direct Storage yet. In principle, PrimoCache should work with Direct Storage without the need of change.
