Suggestion: Raw access without formating

By mpoloton | January 23rd, 2009 | 8:32 am

I don’t know what is the overhead of the file system in accessing the cache file, it might be negligible though. But for situations where the whole drive is dedicated to caching , the drive could be accessed in raw mode without formatting like the Linux swap partition. It would be interesting to measure the increase of performance gained by bypassing the file system.
