considered tiered storage?

2 posts in this topic

Have you considered setting dimm drive up to be able to do tiered storage?

Basically having it monitor for what tasks over time are accessed the most and then moved to the faster drive I.E. ssd and then to the ram drive? Also I would love to be able to use dimm drive for taking games from my 7200rpm drive to my ssd without needing to reinstall. (yes I can do it myself with symlinks but its a hassel)

I get what you are asking here, but I actually like the way that Dimm is set up.

I generally don't like my system switching back and forth from one to another setting.

I would rather just be able to optimize DD for a specific game, and leave it that way.

 

It would be good to see a process monitor built in.  This way users with little ram can

make sure that they are Dimming the correct processes and files for each game.

I thought the link about evaluating a game is great, and it would be perfect to see this integrated.

 

Think of a "spy mode" where dimmdrive is merely watching and evaluating the game.

It could even compute which process will have the most difference made.

"You couldve saved xYZ with dimmdrive".
