How many size must have our Swap partition?

September 28, 2007

Hey, i’m back of holidays!

The size of the Swap partition has always been reason of many discussions in the Linux users. Some people says that the properly size it’s twice of our RAM size.

In this link http://etbe.coker.com.au/2007/09/28/swap-space/ , a guy wrote that the properly Swap size partitions should be:

  • Equal the size of RAM, if your RAM is less than 1G
  • Half the size of RAM for RAM sizes from 2G to 4G.
  • More than 4G of RAM, you need 2G of Swap.
