    how to disable read cache with SSD on linux


    Hi,
    I have Intel X25-V SSD connected to linux machine and its status is shown as "[sdb] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled" in dmesg. I knew we can disable write cache using hdparm. Is there any way to disable read cache and is this read cache present on SSD ?

    Thank you in advance...

    Regards,

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Have you read the man pages for hdparm? Depending upon what you are doing, there are a number of options that deal with read cache.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
