This is a tracking bug for Change: SSD cache
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/SSD_cache
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.
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.
Test day planned: https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-qa/ticket/415
The Change is close to completion for F20:
- Bug 1004693 is ON_QA, and close to being Fixed
- Bug 1003208 is part of F21, not blocking for F20,
Closing this bug as this Change was delivered in Fedora 20 release. Please, reopen in case of any issues you encounter regarding this Change completion.
