What memory location should I use?

Modified on Wed, 13 Feb 2019 at 03:04 PM

What memory location you should use depends on your application and a couple factors. 

Do you need the data to be reboot persistent (non volatile)? Or do you want to start from a clean slate after a reboot (volatile)? 

Volatile memory (temporary)

  • /tmp
  • /var

Non-volatile memory (persistent through reboot/power loss)

  • /etc/luvitred/store
  • /mnt/data/luvitred - note: only on CloudGate LTE

External memory

  • /mnt/sd* - USB
  • /mnt/mmcblk* - uSD card

(*) different letters for each mounted drive
