Increase disk write cache - best method

Post by earthlingkc » Fri Apr 20, 2018 8:29 pm

What's the best tunable to increase write cache for any hard disk on the system. I want to dedicate up to 1GB of system RAM to caching disk writes. On Mint 18.3.

Then, when the system unexpectedly reboots, you'll want help recovering your corrupted file system.

What problem are you experiencing or what is that causes you to want to cache disk writes?

I understand the risk. So what's the best tunable?
