Impact of "Coalesce reads & writes" setting?
« on: May 05, 2018, 10:56:10 pm »

Congrats on the new 4.1.0 release!

I noticed there was this in the changelog:

Coalesce reads & writes

I think this is the corresponding Github issue?

I'm using the qBittorrent on MacOS, and I'm saving on a NAS using SMB. The NAS is using magnetic spinning disks.

Do you see this option (which seems to be default off) having much impact in this scenario? (either in terms of network performance, disk performance, or disk longevity.

I might be moving to qBittorrent on Linux, saving over NFS (or SMB) - any difference there?

Enabling "Coalesce reads & writes" setting should be helpful even on a MAC. but probably less so than under Windows (which has a "worse" disk I/O system):
