Hi, I'd like check some programs that consume lot of memory working without /tmp mounted as tmpfs, since this will occupy even more memory.

systemctl mask tmp.mount

This will turn off any filesystem from being mounted on /tmp, forcing it to be on / instead. To turn it on again, run

systemctl unmask tmp.mount
