SSD Garbage Collection On A None Idle Drive?

3 posts in this topic

If I understand correctly, SSD garbage collection runs when the drive is idle. What if it is a PC is on 24 hours with logs writing? By that logic, the drive is never idle and garbage collection will never run, correct?

Eventually the drive will garbage collect anyway, but it prefers to do so when there is little to no activity.

We have this use case at work. Some devices will exhibit write latency of as much as 6 seconds when they start running out of free blocks and start doing garbage collection!
