I read an interesting article here on indexing performance.
The interesting bit wasn't that SSDs don't give you the increase that you'd expect, but that tmpfs does.
Unfortunately I now run IDEA on Windows so no longer have access to tmpfs.
Has anyone tried RamDisk http://memory.dataram.com/products-and-services/software/ramdisk or ImDisk http://www.ltr-data.se/opencode.html/#ImDisk ?
Someone suggested combining RamDisk with Windows Junction points.
i.e. linking the cache directory to the ram drive
Does this sound like a crazy idea?
I'd be interested in finding out if anyone had tried it.
