Experience with RAM Disk

Does anyone have any experience with RAM Disk?

@bitrise-support did you guys ever experiment with RAM Disk? Meaning putting the workspace (code) on the RAM Disk, and compiling the code there.

All the best!

Hi @johnnytshi,

Thanks for asking this here! :wink:

I don’t have experience with RAM Disk on Bitrise.io, although it should work the same as it would on your Mac/PC (see related docs about how to install & use any additional tool: http://devcenter.bitrise.io/tips-and-tricks/install-additional-tools/), just wanted to mention that on the current/standard Bitrise.io VMs you might not have enough RAM to do this.

We’ll roll out the new “Elite” configs next week, which will have 2x the RAM of the current ones (the Elite configs will be a paid only option); the Standard configs have:

  • 4 GB RAM on Mac stacks
  • 7.5 GB RAM on the Linux/Android stacks

Of course depends on what you want to do, so it might still be useful to create a smaller RAM disk.

If you have any questions just let us know!
