comment How to improve IO when there is a lot of random read and write?
@JimThio dirty_expire_centisecs is not the only value you have to tweak. dirty_async_ratio controls how much of your ram will be used for writecache, until disk io starts. Also keep your Filesystem settings like in mind. What mount options are you using?

@StephaneChazelas "And after a sync data is guaranteed to be committed to disk." Actually sync is just a hint to the OS and not a garantee.

Maybe you want to read this article about how .desktop files work. If everything is set up correctly it should work.

comment Create swap partition after install
@iLinux85 "swap file slow in performance" that is not true. As long as the swap file is not fragmented there shouldn't be any noticeable performance loss when using a swap file. A swap partition however makes sense in case you have a dedicated hard drive for swap.
