God I hate those damn things!Never have had issue with cosmic rays!
Just wonderful, that's one of the few things that I hadn't considered until now.CwF wrote:Never have had issue with cosmic rays!
Well, nobody should claim that this is the ideal solution for every case, I would even vehemently reject it on old machines with extremely little space in RAM. The conventional setup of swap partitions on hard drives certainly still has some permission, but not always. However, the real issue here is still the dimensioning of an adequate solution, no matter what it looks like in the end. That means finding the optimal performance and data security through the most suitable individual solution.Are there any comparative figures on data loss/errors with zramswap to alternatively using specifically targeted disk swap partitions?
Compression caching ... is still compression caching.
What I've said, is that having mulicore CPUs *DOES NOT* improve the performance in case of compressed swap memory - this is technically impossible, as explained earlier, so we have a misunderstanding here..CwF wrote:Well LE, I did give real examples and did say it's 'observational'. There's nothing theoretical about it. I've tested zramswap to lock, it works and manages better than nothing. I don't notice its operation (...)
It's not Me who have started a sub-thread about compressed swap - apparently You have a serious problem with identifying who are You talking too...MicroScreen wrote:@ all of you:

His rubbish isn't worth looking into. The topic here is: Dimensioning of the SWAP space and not which solution is the "best" in each case.
Better read that material instead of polluting this forums with your worthless posts.MicroScreen wrote: There is enough reading material in the form of literature and also online that covers instruction-level parallelism and task parallelism. The hardware-specific facts are also taken into account here, such as the L1 and L2 CPU cashes, the number and size of which play an extremely important role here. So it always depends on the respective kernel architecture and the software used, how efficiently these options are used.
