Where to put swap physically on sata2
I want my swap to be the fastest as possible.
So I'm going to put it on the outer tracks of my sata2 hdd.
But how do I do this in practice: how do I have to partition my hdd?
My sata2 hdd has 250GB, so are the 'outer' tracks the ones around 0 to 10 GB or are they the ones around 240 to 250 GB?
it can make a big difference though
Well, actually it can make a BIG difference, I read some hdd-reports discussing
the read/write speed of inner or outer tracks. Turns out that outer tracks can be
read/written much faster than inner tracks. So my question remains: where do I put my swap partition: last or first in the partition table of my hdd?
