CentOS NFS server - SSD cache?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

After getting my home lab beefed up, but still waiting on some drivers when the budget allows. I wanted to venture into setting u an NFS server.

Instead of using FreeNAS or something i am going with CentOS 7 as an NFS server.

My question was, I wanted to use a spare SSD I have as a cache drive. Right now I only have 2 x 3TB Toshiba's in a raid 1, with hopefully 4 more coming in the next month for a 6 drive raid 10.

I wanted to see if for now I could squeeze as much performance as i could from the raid 1 by using the SSD as a read/write cache.

I am googling around on various guide, but am finding it hard to find a defining answer on using an SSD as a cache drive.

Has anyone here done this, or have any insight into doing it?

Would FS-Cache be what I am looking for?

Sorry to Necropost this, but I've been wondering the same thing. I keep going back and forth between tuning a CentOS7 NFS server and Synology, UnRaid, FreeNAS looking for the best bang for buck setup for reasonably large, but still "home" setup (I have 64T of disks in this server).

Wondering what you've learned? I can answer this question above - that caching is client side and I suspect you are looking for server side which is lvmcache and similar...
