ramdisk size
Hi there friends
1. I want to increase or decrease the size of ramdisk(/dev/ramdisk[#mount -t ramfs /dev/ramdisk /mnt/ramfs])
2. what is the "ramfuse"?

That is ram filesystem. Not ramfuse.

Consider tmpfs instead. You include the size option when it is mounted.

I dont understand any thing!
What is your meaning?
What is ramfuse?
Please say me an example of ramdisk resizing.
thank you.

You asked what is ramfuse. There is no such thing as far as I know. With tmpfs, you can remount it with a different size.


jschiwal@hpamd64:~> sudo mount -t tmpfs -o size=50M,nr_inodes=2k,uid=jschiwal,mode=700 tmpfs test/
jschiwal@hpamd64:~> cp testfile.p* test/
jschiwal@hpamd64:~> ls test
jschiwal@hpamd64:~> sudo mount -t tmpfs -o size=60M,nr_inodes=2k,uid=jschiwal,mode=700,remount tmpfs test/
jschiwal@hpamd64:~> ls test
jschiwal@hpamd64:~> df test
Filesystem          1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
tmpfs                    61440      1576    59864  3% /home/jschiwal/test

Ramfs is used during booting. They are both documented in the kernel source Documentation directory.

Apparently, this is ramfuse:

Fuse::InMemory is a perl module using Fuse to implement a dynamically growing RAM file system. It is accompanied by, a script that can mount the file system. Ramfuse supports most features expected from a file system running on Linux, and it also works on Mac OS X if you get MacFuse to work with perl (not that hard). Fuse::InMemory is not fully tested, but it might be useful as a base for other file systems too.
