RAMDisk Size

  • The RAMDisk size is set at startup from the /usr/share/etc/ram0.conf file and optionally overridden by /etc/ram0.conf.
  • These files have one setting: size=<size in KiloBytes>.
  • The default RAMDisk size in 4.4.1 is 67 MB (size=67000)
  • To increase the size to 80 MB, create an /etc/ram0.conf file with size=80000:
echo "size=80000" > /etc/ram0.conf
backup flash
reboot

*WARNING: Do not make the RAMDisk larger than available memory or the router will fail to boot!
