Hi Val, I think it is quite accurate because eviction in case PDS enabled or not has quite different purposes.
1. Let us consider PDS enabled and page eviction occurs. First of all it is page based eviction, but not entry-based. Actually data is not removed, but only written to disk. We can address this page later by ID. PDS eviction is primarily the replacement of pages from memory to page on disk. This eviction policy should ensure the maximum performance of the solution in the future. There is no data removal from grid in this case. And Ignite does not allow users to configure the policy. If benchmarks show that a change in policy results in increased performance, then we can switch policy. 2. Entry-based eviction (if there is no persistence is available) is slithly different. User will need to reload data into grid in case entry is evicted but required in cache. In that case Ignite provides selection of policies.
