[Request]: enlarge size of tmpfs

Default size of tmpfs is 128MB and this limit is quickly reached now with various processes putting their log information in there (notably Docker).

 

Proposal is to make this at least 256MB or bigger to ensure all log files as created under unRAID v6 will fit.

FWIW, I gave Tom some code on sizing/resizing this on demand in the /etc/rc.S via the syslinux.cfg or via boot parameter.

Maybe Tom could implement this. I provided the code and test cases in an older email.

I am actually using your provided code to increase the size upon system reboot (it is put in 'go'). Thanks for supplying that, it is really helpful to me :)

 

In v6 a lot more is stored under /var/log.

Mind sharing while we wait :)

 

 

# resize log partition

mount -o remount,size=384m /var/log

 

 

I personally had to use at least 384 Megs since each day generated at least a 9.2 Meg file when Dynamix System Activity plugin was installed.

tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)

tmpfs on /var/log type tmpfs (rw,size=128m,mode=0755)

 

After reboot no change....
