Configuring balancer for SSD cache only



I've just finished setting up my pool with a 500GB SSD as a cache, and I have to say, it's pretty awesome!

I was wandering though about the best configuration - there are many parameters, and it's not obvious how each one works, and how they interact with each other. Apologies if this has already been answered somewhere, or seem obvious in the user manual, I'm still a DrivePool newbie.

I want the balancer to work only for SSD cache - moving out the files, as quickly as possible without impacting other activities on the pool. I however do not want the balancer to move files from 1 archive disk to the other (my data is pretty static, and I don't use duplication).

What's the best way to configure that?

If you just have the SSD Optimizer balancer enabled, then this should be exactly what you see happening. 

Also, even the default balancers shouldn't really move things around once the files are on the archive drives, until they're too full.
