Re: How cache into RAM memory rather than on disk?

i was thinking that you would want the system to run as fast as possible,
so not make a real mirror... more just backing up the ramdisk... so maybe
every night, when traffic is slow you would want to do this, of course if
you were not too concerned about speed, you would probably not want to use
more RAM for cacheing?
