Linux will automatically keep recently accessed files in spare ram
Also you can use a ram disk/tmpfs in a proxy cache setup if really needed

Dear all.

We use nginx to server lots of static content with high traffic loads. And the server is getting slower, because slower SATA drive.

So I think how to  keep "hot" files in memory without other software,just like varnish or squid? Does someone has worked out modules for nginx?
