I'm using my machine to build stuff a lot and there's a specific directory that gets used very often. I've got 8GB of RAM, which is helpful for the build, but is far from enough to cache the whole folder (which is around 12GB).
I'm wondering. Is there a way to optimize the access to this particular folder? For instance, can the directory structure for this folder be cached in the RAM? Can the most used files be cached into the RAM as well?
Do you know of such a solution for Ubuntu? I've got UPS so I'm not particularly bothered by power downs.
