How to use MediaCache on VOD and SSD drives CentOS
What would be the proper configuration on mediacache to use the SSD drives and how does it works?
I have mounted 2 SSD 512 on RAID 1 in /cache directory to use the MediaCache feature on WSE, I have about 1.5 TB of media files and I need it to cache only the most visited (I guess that is what it does) but I don't know how to configure it to work well. I've changed the default content directory to my /media folder (where the 1.5 TB data is) and I want to enable the mediacache. Could someone guide me here?
I think one element worth noting is WriteRate in regards to optimizing for SSD. Obtain the sustained I/O rate from the drive and take 25-30% of that and set that in the WriteRate parameter under Root/MediaCacheStores/MediaCacheStore.
For the Max size, if the partition is dedicated then you can use the full partition size. For Write Rate, this has already been covered by both Matt & myself and it depends on how the partitions and disks are configured.
The max bucket size settings should be fine.
If /cache/ is the partition path then yes, that is right.
