Setup and control zram devices. Use `mke2fs` or `mkswap` to format zram devices to partitions.

  • Check if zram is enabled:
    lsmod | grep -i zram
  • Enable zram with 2 devices (use `zramctl` to configure the devices further):
    sudo modprobe zram num_devices=2
  • Find and initialise the next free zram device to a 2GB virtual drive using LZ4 compression:
    sudo zramctl --find --size 2GB --algorithm lz4
  • List currently initialised devices:
    zramctl
