Modifying Cache Settings

You can modify the read and write cache settings for an array. You can also modify the maxCache settings. Adaptec maxCache uses the compatible Solid State Drives (SSDs) in your system as fast cache memory to improve performance for both read and write operations in I/O-intensive applications with mixed workloads.
Note: maxCache SSD Caching is supported on Adaptec Series Q controllers only.

To modify the cache settings for an array:

  1. Select Manage Arrays from the Logical Device Configuration menu.
  2. Select the array, then press Ctrl+C.

    The Modify Cache Settings window opens.

  3. Enable or disable read caching.
  4. Press Tab.
  5. Enable or disable write caching:
    • Select Enable always for “write-back” caching
    • Select Enable with Backup Unit if your controller has a zero-maintenance cache protection module
    • Select Disable for “write-through” caching
  6. Press Tab.
  7. Select the maxCache Read Cache setting (Enable/Disable).
  8. Select the maxCache Write Cache setting (Enable/Disable).
  9. Press Enter to accept the values.
