SSD TRIM settings

  • Hello,
    Recently bought a Protectli Vault barebone network device, installed 8bg of ram and 120gb SSD, installed the latest Pfsense AMD64bit build, setup went smoothly but noticed that TRIM setting isn't enabled, seaching online and this forum, no clear way on doing this or I'm missing something? Thanks and more power!

  • Depending on your use case you may not need TRIM at all. Just about any SSD nowadays works just fine with only the built-in garbabe collector assuming you leave enough unused space on the disk. If you don't let the filesystem get too full the enough unused space condition is easily satisfied. The other way is to leave part of the disk unpartitioned and the unpartitioned space will be naturally unused as well.
