    The site seems to suggest it's been designed for use with hard discs, or ssds that similate hard discs at least. I'd have thought a solution which I assume is designed more for eMMC flash with it's page rewrite limitations would be more to use - maybe we've already got that though, I've not checked.

    It's designed for parallel access and hardware that offers special support for it. It's pretty useless on hardware without multi queue support, which needs to be explicitly enabled even with hardware that supports it.

    Oh, maybe I'm using it wrong then.

    The Pyra has two cores, does that mean blk_mq would be a better option for it?

    Reading up on it, it seems the Pyra would be fine with noop scheduler.
