As of Yosemite, DIY, or non-Apple installed SSDs have Trim support challenges using applications such as Trim Enabler. Assuming one keeps their TRIM supported SSD in Yosemite,
- what is a good strategy for using Trim Enabler periodically so there are no issues with kext-signing and potential OS update conflicts while Trim Enabler is disabled?
- Can this be worked around by periodically using Trim Enabler?
- How long should Trim Enabler be run?
- How often?
- If SSD usage, e.g. amount of read/written data is relevant to how long/often Trim Enabler should be run, is there a way to evaluate guidelines on light, moderate, heavy use.
An excellent feature for TE would be a scheduler to run based on need, then toggle TE off and turn kext-signing back on after a scheduled maintenance run. At least until/if Apple ever reopens kext-signing to software and hardware devs. Cheers -
