ramlog acts as a system daemon that maintains log files in memory instead of hard disk while the system is running. On startup, ramlog creates a ramdisk, copies files from /var/log into the ramdisk, and mounts the ramdisk as /var/log.

All logs after that will be updated on the ramdisk. When shutting down or restarting the service, it saves log files back to hard disk. This service drastically reduces the frequency of hard disk usage, which can be useful when the system runs on battery or uses flash memory instead of a hard disk.
