Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6614) IOUtils.spins doesn't work for drives NVMe drives
Date Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:24:04 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-6614:

To verify there really is a bug here (sorry I should have done this in the OP), I installed
Elasticsearch 2.0 pre-release and started it and I see this in its startup logging output:

[2015-06-26 09:17:54,024][INFO ][env                      ] [Windeagle] using [1] data paths,
mounts [[/ (/dev/disk/by-uuid/d7b5a26e-bf10-4789-8443-9fd98798c554)]], net usable_space [364.3gb],
net total_space [366.6gb], spins? [possibly], types [ext4]

So indeed the bug is really (spins? should say "no", not "possibly"), but the plot thickens
(maybe?) a bit, because of this /dev/disk/by-uuid/... mount point ... or maybe our existing
heuristics deal with this dereference already ...

> NVMe is the faster (than AHCI) protocol for newer SSDs that plug into the PCIE bus.
> I just built a new beast box with one of these drives, and the partition is named {{/dev/nvme0n1p1}}
while the device is {{/dev/nvme0n1}} by Linux - this also appears in /sys/block with rotational=0.
> I think [~steve_rowe] also has an NVME drive ...
> [~thetaphi] (who got the box working for me: thank you!!!) has ideas on how to fix it!
