Using recent kernel (3.9 and later) features for (fast) SSD caching of (slow) ordinary hard disks.

I'll build a bcache-tools RPM and a dm-cache-utils rpm (actually bcache-tools is already available here: bcache-tools-20130820-0.1.fc19.src.rpm).

I'll follow the procedure as described here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers

Tried to create a dmcache-utils package as well (Bug 1000078) but it doesn't look really useful. So I'll focus on bcache-tools first. For that I still need a sponsor.

--- Additional comment from Rolf Fokkens on 2013-08-27 06:52:40 EDT ---

I closed Bug 1000078 since good userland support requires LVM2 to support dm-cache. Which will happen 'in the future', but F20 doesn't look feasible to me.

Create Bug 1003207 (bcache support for dracut) which is not blocking for F20, but probably will be blocking for F21.

Create Bug 1003208 (bcache support for anaconda) which is not blocking for F20, but probably will be blocking for F21.

Comment 1 Pete Travis 2014-01-26 17:30:28 EST
The Storage guide seems like a fitting place to document bcache, reassigning there.
Comment 2 Pete Travis 2017-08-31 15:59:00 EDT
Issues for this guide have moved to pagure, I have created https://pagure.io/storage-administration-guide/issue/3 to track.
