fs-pkg or not!

For our target working with a disk-on-chip device, we are wondering if
we have to use the package filesystem.
What is the kilobytes weight incidence on the storing device?
What is the kilobytes weight incidence in RAM.
What is the lifetime incidence on the storing device? Does the fs-pkg
management need extra writes during file access ?

Thanks,
Alain.

Afair, back in pre-6.0 days someone from QSSL said the pkgmgr is for the
convenience of (QSSL) developers. It is not required, and aside from the
ram overhead, it chews up lots of cpu cycles trying to find where it put
the file you want out of /bin - or wherever. It’s not too hard to set up
in the build file as long as you can mount the target disk-on-chip on a
running system to copy files to it :slight_smile: — I was using a hard drive -
which made it easy!

I wouldn’t use it, simply because I don’t see the benifit when used
in an embedded system. It’s just extra overhead.

If the DOC has enough space to hold two copies of your software
component, maybe the ability to roll back and forth between the
various version could be benificial.

Thanks,

HI Alain,

It is not required.
