Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.
Interesting blog post about zswap functionality

Zswap is basically like a "fake swap partition" inside the RAM itself, but instead of just "moving" things from one place to another in the RAM, these things are compacted, instead of being written to the actual swap partition, on the HDD. Or so I understand. It then squeezes more out of the RAM than with non-compressed use, at some cost of CPU due to the compression/uncompressions, and monitoring, but sparing access to the swap partition on the HDD.
