Not so with Fedora (before C11, anyway) or Red Hat 5. Nothing in FC10
is mapped to tmpfs. Now there's another good reason to use Solaris over
Linux -- consistency across distributions (well, so far, I hope).
The question wasn't "who was first".
Right, it wasn't. Just that 6 years is but an instant in application
development cycles. This application is more than 6 years old...
Now back to the thread...
..... the good news is that /var/tmp and /var/run may officially
be mapped to tmpfs according to the bigadmin article. So the OP
should now have a very good feel for what is safe to move to a
data pool. This has been an interesting thread, especially relevant
in these days of SSDs just becoming affordable.
