Default About minfree

About /sys/module/lowmemorykiller/parameters/minfree

Could someone tell me whether these minfree parameters are in fact resident in RAM?

Since it is under /sys, I believe it is under root, and root is in fact filesystem in RAM.

Am I correct?

The reason I ask, becoz I'm writing a script for dynamic changing of minfree parameters.

If this is a flash, too frequent writing will be a damage.

it's sysfs (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sysfs), so its not flash nor is it on a ramdisk, its just a virtual filesystem to get access to kernel/module params.

Go ahead and change it as often as you want, just don't expect the changes to survive a reboot.
