We're currently using it by memory-mapping the file directly in our application with a
I would like to mount it as a file-system to enable the following use-cases:
- manage stored data with system utilities
- fast and reliable storage for important data (eg. rsyslog disk queue)
- buffer data to be written on flash device
Would it make sense to mount it as a file-system?
How could I do it? Maybe using a loop device to make the file a block device?
What file-system should I consider?
