I've got my temp folder in a ram drive 2.5 gigs ramdrive. And
it helps a lot (we have 17 filters that each needs to view and
possibly alter each message).
And while your right a slight decrease in speed due to having
to copy a file. It would will be dwarfed by the speed of both
the lan and nfs in he's/her's case. As it going to a nas device
which in and of it self is going to be a bottleneck (poor back
plans, nics, os, caching systems, etc)...
Ps. Also for anyone running dovecot moving your indexes to a
ramdrive, also does wonders. And having it rebuilt the indexing
on a reboot for us is a plus.
