I'm currently setting up server hardware/software for a group who want to start a new server. What I want to do is this: Have my world file in the RAMDisk for faster access and therefore better performance, and the server itself on the main C drive. Is there a way to have the wordfile elsewhere besides in the server folder? And another question: There is a lot of controversy as to whether RAMDisks actually help. The server has 16GB total, and I'm allocating the server 4GB for the world (hopefully) and 5GB to the actual CraftBukkit. Is it even beneficial to have a RAMDisk? Or have I wasted my time? Also, any ideas on other things I can do to maximize performance are welcome. EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.
