Squid Cache On A Second SSD?
I'm running pfSense 2.3.3 on an Intel Atom C2758, 8 core processor with 32GB of RAM. pfSense is installed on a 256GB mSata Internal SSD.
I have an unused Samsung 250GB 840EVO SSD that I am considering using as a cache for Squid.
Just want to know if anyone has used an SSD for Squid cache? Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Just an update incase anyone else is adding a second drive for Squid Cache.
I found 2 good guides on how to do this:
My issue is that in shell , pfSense does not recognize my second 250Gb SSD but the Bios does.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Wow that's a lot of RAM, are you even utilising all of that? I find that squid although helps in some cases, in this day and age it doesn't work as well as you'd expect. Due to content being dynamic, and sometimes changing from download to download. And of course the fact that sites are moving to HTTPS.
