I have been using a pair of Intel 320 in RAID 1 on my busy Ubuntu server for about 4 month. While the disk usage never reached 50% of the capacity, but I FEEL that the server has become less responsive, so I'm wondering whether I need to run a trim, an if yes, how to do so? (The Linux kernel is 3.0 after upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10)

    You... feel it... just what unit of measurement is that? – SpacemanSpiff Jan 3 '12 at 1:53

    I wrote feel in capital just to indicate that I have no objective measure to support the claim. It is just my feeling :) – alfish Jan 3 '12 at 2:07
  • Until you can support your feeling with actual statistics, we can't help you. I'm sorry to break it to you, but servers don't have feelings. – Kernel Stearns Feb 19 '17 at 22:46
