StatRam Stat-RAM or 'SD0:' is a very fast recoverable ram drive that
takes advantage of FFS under WB2 or FFS International under
WB2.1 or 3. This work is based on ASDG's 'VD0:'. ASDG-RAM
has been reliable for many years since it was placed in the
PD. However it has always been slow because it uses OFS, or
old file system. On an accelerated machines, SD0: is up to 7
times faster, and averages 5 times faster than the original
VD0:. It's also 4 to 5 times faster than RRD. It survives
the deepest re-boot, even the ColdReboot of rekicking a KS
file. Version 1.5, binary only.
