Here is the setup. I have a real fast desktop that has 4gb ram. I also have a server machine that has 32gb ram, but is much slower than the desktop. I run a lot of matlab code that would be nice to be fast AND have lots of ram available. Is there anyway to somehow setup Fedora to use ram over a network?

Thanks,

Dave

I don't know, but here is a idea: you can create a big swap file over a remote disk.... but anyway the speed will be as low as your network speed. RAM has to be fast...(so, it's all a bad idea..lol)
