I’m trying to understand what are the optimizations necessary to ensure the optimal functioning of a SSD with UM, but all the material that i could find is at least one year old and is quite inconsistent.
I’ve bought a Drevo SSD (X1 Pro 128 GB) and i have a Acer Aspire with 4 GB of RAM.
What i managed to understand is:
I need to leave around 10% of anallocated space for overprovisioning.
I shouldn’t have a swap partition.
Set swappiness to 10.
Now first problem: isn’t it necessary with that small amount of RAM to have a swap partition? I use this PC mainly for study, but sometimes i need to run IDEs, servers, or pretty demanding softwares.
Second: i’m trying to understand if TRIM is enabled by default on UM or not.
If not i’ve seen how to enable it in different way: automate it via cron or by putting discard and noatime in fstab.
Wich is the best way?
Are there any other recomanded actions?
Thanks for your help and i’m sorry if i made any mistake.
