Best practices for SDD drive?



  • Is there and special care that needs to be taken when using an SSD for a pfSense setup? What are best practices, settings?

    Thanks

  • It would be nice to enable TRIM support as I see it right, if the SSD is supporting TRIM.
    Thats all of it.



  • without trying to hijack this thread or get too far off topic…

    how would a hybrid SSD (SSHD) perform with pfsense?  Since they typically have ~8GB of NAND Flash memory I would assume the system would see the benefits of faster boot times from the flash memory but not really have the same concerns with having to deal with TRIM settings (since it would likely never really write anything to the flash storage).

    Thoughts?

    This must be answered by peoples how have such a storage in use!

    How often you are booting your firewall?

    but not really have the same concerns with having to deal with TRIM settings (since it would likely never really write anything to the flash storage).

    Can you personally confirm that this SSHD is supporting the TRIM commend in any way?
    if not the question is obsolete, as I see it right.

    Right On!!!! Should be measured in weeks between releases!!!
