zram / zswap
« on: 2022/02/23, 21:20:48 »
Hi all,

I came across some website mentioning zram / zswap as kernel modules that could be interesting, especially for PC's with limited RAM, to speed up the system. Also a script named systemd-swap is mentioned. Does anyone have experience with this? Is it worth while using it? What option do you prefer? zram or zswap?

Personally I use zswap because I also use suspend to disk on my laptop. The siduction kernel has zswap as a module.
IIrc it can be enabled by adding
Code: [Select]
zswap.enable=1
to the kernel command line.
