is there any way to use an usb stick as ram? or similar
Basically, what you'd do is set up the drive as swap space (see this).
But, this is generally not a good idea for the following reasons:
- because of the slow access times on a USB stick, your memory would be really really slow and this would make the system overall very sluggish and reduce performance
- swap is write-intensive. This will wear out the flash memory. Yes, USB sticks are cheap and plentiful, so not a big deal when one gets damaged, but it may cause unpredictable behaviors when it is beginning to fail and it is just a pain to deal with.
- General resource limitatoins. If the system has very little memory to begin with, it also probably has limited flash memory and likely doesn't have a particularly powerful CPU... you'll increase the number of running processes, but at the expense of performance (the first point), and often things that need a lot of memory tend to also more processor intensive than what your processor can likely do comfortably.
If this is still for the TL-WR902AC that we've discussed previously, you should consider a more powerful device (especially if you're not intending to use it as a travel device). I have a 902AC that I use as a travel VPN (road-warrior style)... it's fine, not amazing, but it works. It is not a model that has performance specs worth getting excited about, though.
after installing stubby and banip stability went straight down on my 902 , i was wanting it to have it with a big banip list, also v2ray vpn basically a road warrior hotspot but it stay short for my requirements and gli routers are not totally openwrt thenks
Some of the glinet routers are fully supported by official OpenWrt.
I just run a road-warrior VPN to home, and I don't worry about banIP or other things. But, you could always do that on your home router facing out to the internet (which is likely more powerful than the 902ac).
i was reading openwrt supports some glinet yes but aparently performance decays i need to do more research before shooting , also found this
at 39$ but performance and specs is same as glinet routers so my shot will he for a glinet (when i borrow enough)
