[Nbd] Swapping over Nbd
...I've googled for two hours about using nbd as a network swap solution
for low-memory thinclients... (I'm a developer of the thinstation.sf.net
project), but there is some unanswered questions:
- How reliable is it?
- At the current state of development, do I need to patch the kernel or not?
- If yes, where can I find the patch? Which kernel version are
supported? Is it actively supported? Only 2.4.x branch or 2.6.x also?
- nbd-server: how can I serve a different swap file for every thinclient
of a network? Is there a different solution than having a nbd-server
waiting at a different port for each thinclients?
Thank for the attention, and bye!
