We found a bottleneck in our server (hosted on HDD) related to the
/dev/random function. We want to have the OS use the
/dev/random that is on our SSD drive rather than the HDD.
How can we have the server use
/dev/random on another drive than the OS? would this be a Symbolic links or Hard links?
Any advice on how to accomplish this (use random from a different mounted server) would be appreciated.
edit Thanks to Scott for your patience :]
SOLR and OS runs on HDD. We have a SOLR index on an SSD volume. When we index files through java, that's running on the HDD and causing a lot of disc writes, so we want to move it over to the SSD (dictated not read).
