Maximize browser performance with a RAMdisk
Authored by: theosib on Mar 19, '11 07:19:23AM

I'm not sure what the CCC schedule is to commit cache data to real disk, but there can be advantages to using a RAM disk. This basically comes in the form of no pressure to commit changes to disk. If you run out of free RAM, then it'll hit swap, which would defeat the purpose. Otherwise, you never have any overhead from writing to physical media.
