17:25 <Moonsilence> Hi! I like the idea of Boinc and am willing to donate my electrical power to research, but I don't like so much the idea of constantly writing to my SSD concerning lifespan. Is it possible for Boinc to operate work packages in RAM only?
17:27 <Eagle07> Are you on linux?
17:27 <Moonsilence> Win 8
17:27 <Eagle07> then no, not easily
17:27 <Eagle07> What SSD do you have?
17:28 <Moonsilence> Adata SP900 Pro os so... I have 16 GB of Ram, so plenty of unused.
17:28 <Eagle07> just about any modern ssd can't be worn out before its obsolete
17:28 <Moonsilence> I see...
17:28 <Eagle07> that said... you got an offbrand
17:28 <Moonsilence> So even years of running Boinc wouldnt really harm it?
17:29 <Moonsilence> What is an offbrand?
17:29 <Eagle07> what size drive?
17:29 <Moonsilence> 128 GB
17:30 <Eagle07> non mainstream brand.
17:31 <Moonsilence> O.K., and does that make it more or less vulnerable to wear?
17:31 <Eagle07> It seems to be fine
17:32 <Moonsilence> O.K. thanks! So I shouldnt worry about this then.
17:32 <Eagle07> not really no
17:32 <Eagle07> You can take the time to figure out how to make a ramdrive
17:33 <Eagle07> and use that for your boinc data directory
17:33 <Eagle07> but I don't think there are any free ramdisk programs on windows currently
17:33 <Eagle07> With linux.... it is just a few commands.
17:34 <Moonsilence> Actually there are, but I think it wont be neccesary then.
17:35 <Moonsilence> Thanks
17:35 <Eagle07> They are writing to those drive continuously
17:36 <Eagle07> they are up to 600TB

18:37 <MiniFridge> RAMDisk?
18:37 <MiniFridge> I haven't really tried RAMDisk though
18:37 <MiniFridge> Adata not mainstream?

20:27 <Eagle07> MiniFridge, no, I would be tempted to call Adata a B brand
20:28 <MiniFridge> who do you consider A brands?
20:29 <Eagle07> Corsair, Intel, Samsung
20:29 <Eagle07> Seagate
20:29 <Eagle07> Sandisk, Hitachi
20:30 <Eagle07> crucial and OCZ for the A- to B
20:31 <Eagle07> I am missing an a brand... PNY is up there ... Aish
20:31 <Eagle07> Plextor ...there we go
20:32 <Eagle07> for the mac users out there... OWC
20:33 <Eagle07> but there are a number of B brands that don't really make their own IP
20:33 <Eagle07> or much of it
20:33 <Eagle07> not super performers
20:34 *** up365 has quit IRC
20:34 <Eagle07> I tend to prefer non-sandisk controller based drives
20:35 <Eagle07> drives that don't rely on compression of data for performance
20:35 <Eagle07> Corsair has a LAMD controller that is pretty slick and is pretty much the best drive on the consumer side
20:35 <Eagle07> Seagate 600 pro uses the same controller
20:35 <Eagle07> considerably cheaper...
20:36 <Eagle07> Samsung makes their own controllers that are solid...as does Intel.
20:36 <Eagle07> Though some intel are also sandforce controlled.
20:36 <Eagle07> I derpted on that... non sandforce controllers...

21:43 <PovAddict> I have a laptop with a small sandisk SSD (in addition to the bigger spinning-metal disk)
21:43 <PovAddict> I tried compiling software on it and it hangs from all the activity
