virtual network USB drives? Silex . usb 1.1 700k

Recommended Posts

I am intending to use drivebender with virtual USB drives hanging off old Silex sx-1000U network USB emulators, which work fine, but only at usb 1.1 speeds 700k.

The good thing about the silex devices is its true USB; unplug from that and directly into the system and the system doesn't know the difference. I can configure or do real maintenance with a direct connection.

 

 

My questions is: Can I prioritize the drives?

 

The smaller drives will be out on the usb links. Im trying to have a large local fast cash and those drives get used later in balancing ?

 

 

I used drive bender long ago, maybe 4 years.

There's a "landing zone" feature that may be what you're looking for. With a landing zone drive specified you can direct initial creation of a file to the "landing zone". My understanding is DB will copy off the data to other drives in the pool as space is needed on the "landing zone" drive.

 

The thing to be aware of is that reading those files later will be dealing with the slower USB drives.

It works, its sluggish. but it does work.

 

the thing about the nas usb is its not available until the operating system is usable, so I need to work out how to delay drivebender for a minute or two so the OS is happy with the drives.
