aLcATRAZ Posted January 17, 2006 Report Share Posted January 17, 2006 Hello!I have a problem with my raid array working too damn much when downloading at 10-100 Mbit. The random activity is just too much and the drives would not survive long with this abuse. The abuse/wear is rapidly multiplied when using larger arrays.The computer has 4 GB of memory of which 3gb I try to use as a ramdrive for downloads but that doesnt work so well with combined seeding/downloading taking up more than 3 GB of space.I request a way for the disk cache to use the availible RAM like a ramdrive for downloads, with other words, a true disk cache. That means IF the disk cache can hold the entire torrent NOTHING is written to the harddrive untill the torrent is finished. Also when seeding, the torrent should be kept in the cache (even though it means reading the entire torrent before seed, (side option?)).I think more people are getting this trouble with extensive harddrive wear, especially with high speed downloads. Buying some extra RAM (cheap today) really is worth the money saved on harddrives. But most important, the load on the system would be much lower while downloading. Please implement this function to open up SAFE ULTRAFAST DOWNLOADS!! Thank you for your time. /Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
