If you are already using a decent-sized disk cache, you may not need to use
an explicit RAM disk as the caching should accomplish the same thing.  If
the cache is too small, though, or if you find a lot of disk thrashing
going on, a small RAM disk might be better.  I would suggest folks
experiment with both and see which works best in their environment.
