You should write this stuff up, this is beginning to make some sort of sense, you have a better way of explaining it than the stuff I've read
I read this as a real layman and try to write in the same way I understand it.
Although, sometimes I have a hard time understanding myself,
Maybe Krisbee can also give some input on what profiles can work best in some specific cases.
As per OMV use, I would like to have an idea on what profile would fit better on a disk that is meant to hold only MEDIA to share on the LAN (Videos, Music, etc). These are usually, "static" files on disk just to be "Read".
So, does it make any sense in having bitrot protection on this?
Or, is this the exact situation that requires bitrot protection?
And on the inverted situation:
A disk where a lot of writtings happen all the time? I already know how and why to avoid "write amplification" due to databases constant writtings.
But, what about the other different scenarios:
A webserver, for eg? Or file browser with lots of files upload/download? Nextcloud with it's cloud function?
Still in the grey zone area and swimming in "muddy waters", on some subjects.
