I have the current scenario:
16GB or RAM. For the most part, around 10~12GB unused
Almost never install/remove software, this is a mature system
Only reboot like once a week, so (re-)boot time is irrelevant
/usris around 8GB
HDD is slow, and no budget to change that in the near future
fstabdid wonders for performance
And I just had this crazy idea:
Is it possible to, somehow, use my RAM to "store"
In that that, when starting up, it reads current
/usr content from HDD and copy it to a
tmpfs and mount that as
If possible, also flushing the (perhaps updated) contents back to HDD when shutting down? Or maybe allowing me to easily "temporarily switch back to HDD" when eventually needed to install/remove new software or updates?
Any approach is welcome, ready-to-use commands will be highly regarded.
