SuperUsers. I want to preserve the life of my laptop's SSD drive. I make heavy use of Vagrant, Chef, and Virtualbox. I'm using Test Kitchen w/ Vagrant to run my infrastructure code tests. I am creating and destroying VMs all day, several times a day, sometimes in parallel. I'd like all of this ephemeral activity to happen on a tmpfs, like /dev/shm/, rather than chewing away at my write-limited SSD. I'm running GNU/Linux. I have 32 GB RAM, so would like to make heavy use of it! :)
There are so many locations where these programs store their files, that I was hoping someone out there has a magic symlink, bind mount, or similar that will just magically make this problem easy to solve. :) Any takers? Thanks in advance.
