I've been reading and trying (successfully) a blog/thread about the way vm is handling the cache/buffers and how to control it from the user's perspective in : http://rudd-o.com/archives/2007/10/0...w-to-fix-that/
so now i'm using these parameters:
vm.vfs_cache_pressure = 50
vm.swappiness = 1
which is nice, but i'm looking for some more ui responsiveness.
now, i was wondering if the vm/kernel can be instructed to leave some applications out of the cache queue or just have them back at the end so kwin (kde's window manager) and kicker (application launcher and menu) could always be in RAM and thous be responsive to user's actions (clicks...) as far as possible.
is it possible ?
