I am using an SSD with Solaris Express. Solaris Express does not have TRIM. I doubt newer versions of Solaris has TRIM, but OpenZFS might have TRIM?
My question is this. I am going to reinstall Solaris 11.1 on the SSD (I have bought a new PC). My SSD has never been TRIMed, so I should TRIM the SSD I guess. But, if I reformat the SSD with ZFS, do I still need to TRIM the SSD?
I installed a new SSD, but I've read some places that you should enable trim and some that you shouldn't.
I have a Kingston SSDNow 300 120 gb drive and from what I can understand, it's simply plug and play and the sandforce controller should take care of everything. But I'm not sure and articles online aren't too clear. Can anyone clear the air just a bit for me?
I have just bought a new computer which came with an SSD. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit and I would like to know about TRIM. Having done an internet search, it appears that a) my SSD supports trim and b) that Ubuntu 14.04 supports TRIM by default. Do I need to do anything, or is that it?
If someone gets an SSD that has TRIM support in the firmware and loads Fedora 12, does the
I/O layer have support for TRIM yet? Or is it something where you need to add a flag to the kernel at boot time?
Does Suse have any software based TRIM support available or that is in the works?
I know there is to a degree new firmware becoming available that supports TRIM (although some are pretty rudimentary) but windows 7 does a fairly good job software side and upgrading the firmware occasionally involves the unbridled joy that is wiping the drive and starting again.
