Hi, I am using manjaro linux xfce the latest version and my SSD has it’s read and write speed lowered after a few hours of use. I am not doing anything intensive just have firefox browser and vscode text editor opened and after a few hours my speeds go from 3200 read and 2600 write to 800 read and 800 write.
Do I need to enable TRIM? I tried lsblk --discard and my SSD supports trim and when I checked if fstrim.timer is enabled it is not.
Should I enable it if my SSD is only getting slow after my computer is on for a few hours (because it says this is periodic) or do I have to enable continious trim through discard? I don’t want to mess anything up and I am unsure of this stuff… thank you
I don’t believe enabling TRIM would fix the issue you seem to have (but enabling TRIM is important though). If your SSD speed goes to 25% of its rated speed after using the computer for a few hours, there might be an issue somewhere else.
yes i replicated the issue and i was wrong. The issue doesn’t occur after a few hours, but rather when I boot the PC from a powered off state it is 25% of it’s speed but if I restart it it goes back to the normal speed. I am confused and not sure what to do. Do I just restart my PC after every boot?
