Phoronix: The Best Features Of The Linux 3.10 Kernel
The Linux 3.10 kernel is slowly getting ready for release in the coming weeks. If you haven't been closely following Phoronix in the past few months of Linux 3.10 feature development, here's a brief overview of some of the best and most interesting features to be found in the next version of the Linux kernel...
I'm really looking forward to BCache benchmarks.
I'm also curious how things are handled when an SSD dies. Does anyone know? BCache could be really useful in servers that are constantly hammered with reads/writes, but I imagine the SSDs will wear out after a few years of constant use.
With BCache, the backing devices will see less ops, but that doesn't mean that the caching SSD will see more ops than it would have without BCache. BCache won't cause anything to wear out faster than it would have otherwise. As for SSD suitability for usage cases with frequent I/O ops, that's a different topic I think.
