I’m planning on a Raspberry Pi Outernet home-built setup, and wonder if the amount of memory matters, as I don’t fully understand who caches the data transmitted.
For example, would more memory (RAM) serve me better so that more data is cached locally, or does it matter because data is only cached when the computer is connected?
Frankly, being so new to the concept (and no hardware yet to test), I’m trying to understand. If in fact the RPI hardware caches either data or indexes to data, then clearly I would want the largest capability of the device. Conversely, if data (or data indexes) are only stored to the local computer’s connected wireless to the RPI, then there is little point to in spending more money on a larger memory card.
Thanks in advance for the input!
