Improve system performance by moving your log files to RAM

>You have a Ph.D and you can not do very simple byte math?

80000 KB == 80MB is true, but 80000 KiByte != 80 MB

Ambiguity !!! Please read the definition ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilobyte )


Some people must read the article again. It is not mentionned that this trick is for an important machine that needs to keep tracks of logs if something fails. It is just meant to save access to limited writes of SSD (about ~100k writes per block for NAND tech).

Stop trolling and if you don't find this article important don't link it to an high MySQL enterprise server, neither to performance except if a daemon goes crazy and sends thousands line of logs per second, which is, rare.

If logs are needed for a true read-only system, it is still possible to send them over a network, but this is another story...
