The feature may be adopted/promoted on the basis of SSD writecycle
preservation, but tmpfs also offers considerable performance
improvements for workloads that create/remove files in /tmp at high
speed— which is the reason that many people have been using tmpfs for
/tmp on many systems for much longer than SSDs have existed.
Well, I don't have any workloads that are doing high-speed create/remove of file in
And I don't think most people have any of those types of workloads either.
Wouldn't it make sense that people with those types of workloads could enable /tmp on
Rather than making it the default for everyone.
