Googled it and only found manual for Centos 7 which does not seem to help. How to do it correctly in Centos 8?

What is "zram"?

Kernels of both EL7 and EL8 do provide module 'zram'. Packages 'util-linux' contains utility 'zramctl'.

Package 'anaconda-core' contains 'zram.service'. That seems to create compressed swaps in RAM
but is wanted only by anaconda.target, which I presume to be used by installer.
