My application creates cache for read/write inside my OS drive, which is slow, so I have mounted tmpfs and created a directory inside it. Then I created a symlink at the path on the slow drive where the caches are created, pointing at the tmpfs directory.
I want to know if my app does a lot of read/write using the symlink, is it going to affect tmpfs or OS drive performance?
My partitions are:
tmpfs /cache/dp/ /dev/sda3 / <-- subdir /this/is/location
I created the symlink with:
ln -s /cache/dp /this/is/location
