I want to add temporary files to /dev/shm with my VMware but I found this hack to improve the perfomance of the vm:
mount -t tmpfs -o size=5G,nr_inodes=5k,mode=700 tmpfs /disk2/tmpfs
But I don't know what it's doing (it's adaptive ramdisk) and why it could help to improve the performance? Do I've add this to my fstab? This is my vmware settings:
#temp directory tmpDirectory="/disk2/tmpfs" # bugfix host.cpukHz = "2200000" host.noTSC = "TRUE" ptsc.noTSC = "TRUE" # I/O fix prefvmx.useRecommendedLockedMemSize = "TRUE" prefvmx.minVmMemPct = "100" # temp file fix mainMem.useNamedFile = "FALSE" MemTrimRate=0 MemAllowAutoScaleDown = "FALSE" # Cpu fix mem.ShareScanTotal=0 mem.ShareScanVM=0 mem.ShareScanThreshold=2024 sched.mem.maxmemctl=0 sched.mem.pshare.enable = "FALSE" # Disable 3d mks.enable3d = "true"
Maybe this is the correct command:
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults,size=5G,nr_inodes=5k,mode=700 0 0?
