ZRAM - reduce writing to an SSD

If you have an SSD hard disk, and enough RAM, it's a good idea to install zram as it can reduce writing to the SSD.

The zramswap package in Arch Linux provides an automated script to set up a swap with a higher priority and a default size of 20% of the size of your system's RAM. To do this automatically at each boot, enable zramswap.service.

yay -S zramswap 

sudo systemctl enable zramswap.service

sudo systemctl start zramswap.service

cat /proc/swaps
