Working to squeeze the most out of my Z800 CAD Workstation. I'm looking at the potential to create a RamDisk/RamDrive for the program and files I'm working with. If anyone has some RamDisk/Drive experience with HP workstations I would love to hear your recommendations.
My concern is with dual processors and dedicated memory. What happens if I allocate memory for a RamDisk that exceeds 1/2 of the total installed memory? For example with 32GB memory there is 16GB per processor. If I allocate 20GB for a RamDisk will one processor be starved for memory?

I got the ramdisk set up. Still learning about it. With MNI enabled, when I set up a 20GB ramdisk (32GB total system memory) the processors didn't seem to be memory starved however, when I disabled it and enabled NUMA Split mode several CPU's showed up parked. I plan to do some more testing although I'm still figuring out how to best use a ramdisk.
Here are the speed test results:
