I've just finished coding a new balancing plugin for StableBit DrivePool, it's called the SSD Optimizer. This was actually a feature request, so here you go. I know that a lot of people use the Archive Optimizer plugin with SSD drives and I would like this plugin to replace the Archive Optimizer for that kind of balancing scenario. The idea behind the SSD Optimizer (as it was with the Archive Optimizer) is that if you have one or more SSDs in your pool, they can serve as "landing zones" for new files, and those files will later be automatically migrated to your slower spinning drives. Thus your SSDs would serve as a kind of super fast write buffer for the pool. The new functionality of the SSD Optimizer is that now it's able to fill your Archive disks one at a time, like the Ordered File Placement plugin, but with support for SSD "Feeder" disks. Check out the attached screenshot of what it looks like Notes: http://dl.covecube.com/DrivePoolBalancingPlugins/SsdOptimizer/Notes.txt Download: http://stablebit.com/DrivePool/Plugins Edit: Now up on stablebit.com, link updated.
Is it possible/likely that we will have API access to DrivePool/CloudDrive in the near future? My setup has only a single SSD, and I've attached multiple CloudDrives to the system. The CloudDrives are put into a DrivePool with duplication enabled. Since all the caches are in a single hardware SSD, tasks that require reading/writing from the hard drive slow to a halt when duplication begins. This generally isn't an issue for me, but I'm also mirroring everything in the DrivePool directly to a Google Drive via Drive File Stream for unencrypted access. I run this sync once a week, but it can take a while so I'd like to be able to tap into DrivePool via a script and tell it to hold off on duplication and balancing until the script completes mirroring. I know this sounds complex and a niche use case, so I'm thinking it's probably not high on the list of priorities to incorporate API access, if at all, but I wanted to ask. Thanks!
