How big should I make rwfs?


Hello All:

What is the rwfs used for and how big should it be?
My rwfs on my embedded system has 90 MB and df shows only 72 blocks in use.

If I reduce the size by 40MB should I see more 40 MB more free mem available when I run the 'free' command?

Thanks,
--B

it looks like a normal tmpfs and in that case I think the real size will be dynamically allocated. You need to specify the maximum allowed size.
