Including in the metadata
Before using this cookbook, remember to put it as a dependency in your metadata:
# metadata.rb depends 'ramdisk'
Create a 10MB tmpfs RAM disk:
ramdisk '/mnt/ramdisk1' do size '10m' end
A Complex Example
Create a tmpfs RAM disk setting some options and the owner user:
ramdisk '/tmp/secure_bob_ramdisk' do size '1g' user 'bob' group 'bob' persist false nosuid true nodev true noexec true noatime true inodes '999k' mode '750' end
Please do not hesitate to open an issue with any questions or problems.
