This may seem weird, but I'm actually looking for ways to increase my memory usage.
I have a Macbook Pro (8,1) with 4 GB that I updated to 16GB.
I really feel like I'm losing a lot for those 10 unused GB, aren't there any caching techniques that would help me put 'more useful stuff in my RAM' (assuming, of course, that I don't overflow this amount and start swapping on the HD, which would be counter-productive) ?
For instance, while looking for SSD's, I had a look at Samsung's RAPID technology that seem to do what I had in mind (although it does not seem to be compatible with Macs, and the amount of cache is not tunable ) ...
I have to add that I am perfectly *nix capable, work in a proper brewed environment and I am not afraid of the command line.
I've found some links where people (manually) simlinks cache directories (for instance, Safari's) to RAM disks, any experience with that and/or soft handling that ?
I am using Mavericks, OS X 10.9.2 (13C1021)
