I have more than enough ram in my computer (8GB), which hardly gets used. In the most cases my desktop and apps use up in 2-3GBs out of it, on the other hand I do not have an SSD.
My system is 64bit Debian Wheezy.
I wonder if there is any framework which copy regularly used files like thunderbird, firefox, openoffice, vlc, pidgin to a ramdisk at every start to speed up access.
This is obviously doable by with an init shellscript after each boot then have symlinks setup for those files later on but maybe there is a complete solution to do this already...
Are there any optimizations for the linux kernel (3.14) which can take advantage of large amount of memory better than a stock kernel? If so what are those?
In this case disabling swap partition completely is a good idea right?
