Trim Assistance

  • Fellow members:

    I have Pfsense 2.4.2_1 running with a Samsung 850 Pro (256Gb). I have tried follow the commands and process for turning on Trim but have not been successful.

    I obtained the SSD drive information as the following:

    /dev/gptid/45a16a44-0122-11e8-a969-001b218d29b8 /

    What sequence of commands is required to turn on Trim.

    I typed tunefs -p / at the command prompt and the system indicates Trim is disabled.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thank You

  • Please see the old thread

  • Thanks for the suggestion. Still can not get Trim to enable.

  • Reboot to single user (wait some time after it shows on your screen)

    /sbin/tunefs -t enable /

    and then:
    /sbin/shutdown -r now

    to verify:
    tunefs -p /

    Thanks for the assistance. The steps you outlined worked perfectly. The single user boot was the key.
