    Thanks @fostert, I did some more googling, and it appears that what I had seen involved a bunch of other stuff that I didn't remember (allocating the RAMdisk and then adding it to initrc). I'll keep this in mind! Do you use a ram-disk much under LINUX?

    nice, another linux user i'm kinda sucks in linux desktop computing. now i know who to look for lol!

    @Zygomorphic, maybe what you've read was about persistent-like ramdisk that can be loaded during the next boot. for temp folders in servers, there is almost no such need for this persistence feature.

    I think so, that makes more sense as to why it involved stuff. Still, all things considered it would be really handy to copy commonly-accessed media to a RAMdisk for a web server.

    ram is also a precious resource on server. if you owned a server, you can definitely do whatever you want with it. for new servers that come with a lot of ram, if it can be used as a single host, i will definitely do that too. but these cases are very rare for corporates. these days many are moving towards server virtualization with new machines. it's still hard to find the balance point sometimes.

    for old machines, they usually come with rather limited resources. most of the times, we can only do that much (i.e. using small-sized ram-based /tmp).

    No, I only allocate 1GB of the 32GB in my G74 for the RAMdisk temp file storage. The rest I usually leave free to display data cubes, and to run Windows 7 in a VM (I give the VM 4 GB of system RAM to use). The full 32GB usually gets a good workout daily, especially lately since lots of good data is rolling in off the telescope, and I get to be the first to see it!

    Sounds like fun! I run Windows in a VM, as well as PC-BSD (I like trying different OS'es), so having enough RAM and processing power is mandatory (4 CPUs + 6 GB RAM for PC-BSD 9.0).

    @rewben, it was an example for using a really small RAM disk, primarily for things like tiny graphics that are commonly accessed (if you don't have SSDs).
