I was reading a blog entry on the Web Developer’s Personal Notepad, and came across an article of how he could speed up his PHP Unit tests by 10 times. I mean, wow, TEN. TIMES. That’s a lot indeed.
So, it turns out that he used a RAM storage for the databases, and that really lowered the bottleneck effect on those tests. Not only that, it turns out that the used software, RAMDisk, is available free of use for storage under 4 GBs. Even if you need to have a licensed version, it only costs 10 dollars, so there’s no excuse to start making your databases go on memory for this kind of stuff.
Also, it’s disposable storage, so it fits perfectly the purpose of testing. Sadly it’s only available for Windows Vista+, but hey, it’s still free for all of us!
I’m a tested little skunk.
