I want to increase the speed of video uploading to the server and the speed of video processing, but for this I want to understand how to use hard drives correctly and where it is better to place directories.
At the moment I have 2 HDDs, each disk has a size of 3TB, ZFS Mirror file system. There is also a 1TB SSD that I want to use for temporary file storage.
The entire « storage » folder resides on a large RAID with a total size of 3TB (because it is a mirror). The read and write speed does not suit me, video processing is slow.
I want to transfer some directories to the SSD, so I need your help to figure out which directories I can transfer to the SSD? And will it help to increase the speed of transcoding?
For example, while video is being processed, it will be in a temporary directory on the SSD, and after processing it will be moved to another directory, which is located on a regular HDD.
