And here endeth the brain dump. God bless systemd for making it happen I guess, pinnacle of init systems indeed!
Fast-Nop35825274dAs for the swap, it used to be that a swap partition was much faster, but that isn't the case anymore. It's just less flexible than a swap file, and you may have to re-partition if you fit more RAM into your computer.
Also, reducing the swappiness makes sense for desktop (and laptop), 60 is too high. What you want isn't just raw performance or throughput, but responsiveness. If a task takes 10% longer because there's e.g. less caching (because program code isn't swapped!), but the GUI doesn't lag, that's usually the better choice for desktop and laptop usage.
I also have to question the advantage of hibernation, given that just booting from SSD doesn't take long anyway, at least under Linux.
@Fast-Nop good points! As far as hibernation goes, for me personally it wouldn't really be that it's faster to boot.. usually it's slower than cold boot, due to the sheer amount of data that has to be transferred. Mostly it's the idea of being able to continue where I left off. My command line work is on a container elsewhere that I just SSH into (also helps with maintaining a shared environment across multiple workstations). But some work is also done directly on the workstations, which is where hibernation comes in. But of course suspend can also do that (assuming that the system can actually do it of course).. so yeah, with the amount of storage required to enable hibernation... It's becoming less and less important.
Entity-0100010117274dAny idea if that 30Gb hack works for Win 10?
Cause thats awesome and I have 16Gb of RAM.
@Entity-01000101 You can always try! I've used these tutorials for Windows 7: https://appuals.com/enable-disable-... and https://howtogeek.com/126430/.... See if the files exist on Windows 10 and how large they are - if so, they can be deleted. The page file is for the virtual memory component (effectively the swapping part of swap), and the hibernation file is for hibernation (well.. the "send memory dump for hibernation" part of swap). After disabling it, of course hibernation becomes unavailable, so only disable it if you don't need it.
