Linux RAMDisk filesystem with blocking writes when filesystem is full
The 'producers' are external machines sending data to an SMB share. That share will be mounted on (ideally) such mentioned special ramdisk. So I guess I could modify samba code to check for space before writing, or intercept the write system call (w/LD_PRELOAD or other tricks) and do the checking. But I really want to avoid that. On the other side, reliability is handled on a "jobs expected" vs "jobs processed" basis - We do a delta at the end and re-request those not processed. Problem is machines sending by SMB may halt if receive too many full disk errors - we don't control them at all.
