Do I need cache drive?

Recommended Posts

Just looking for a opinion, I have my three windows VM, Ubuntu and few dockers on 1 TB NVME drive on my unraid machine. I dont have a cache drive yet, but there are lots of deals out there for NVME drives.


Question is will I benefit from having a cache drive(another TB NVME)?

Sounds like you are running things on an unassigned device. Unassigned Devices are not part of user shares. Simpler to make that a pool (cache) and let Unraid manage it, but if you don't need any User Share features for appdata, vdisks (domains), docker.img/libvirt.img (system) I guess it doesn't matter.
