SSD Solid State Disks

Solid State Disks, DDS or flash drives require special settings to work optimally - Partition Alignment and TRIM settings are required

Alignment

  • see AdvancedFormatDrives
  • Alignment is very important for the performance of an SSD
    • Typically 4K or larger alignment on partitions helps.

TRIM

Linux TRIM

  • As of 10.10 TRIM is supported natively by the kernel. It requires using the "discard" option in /etc/fstab - see the refrences below for examples
