Again.. tmpfs is restricted to half the RAM size by default. You
store 8-9GB of trash.. only 2GB, which might land on swap over time.
is it limited to half the RAM or 2 GB?
on my machine half the RAM is 8 GB
what about a application storing 4 GB in /tmp
no longer possible
however, it is still bullshit AS DEFAULT
do not touch users RAM for temp crap
if the application thinks it is useful to buffer
something in the RAm it can do this since many
years and THIS is the memory you can swap out
why do some people all the time introduce braindead
changes for the sake of the change? leave the system
as it is if it works fine and search a hobby beside
IT if you are bored!
