According to table 6.2.Recommended System Swap Space(https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/pdf/Installation_Guide/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-7-Installation_Guide-en-US.pdf)

if amount of RAM in the system is between 8GB - 64GB, recommended swap space is 0.5times the amount of RAM
and if amount of RAM is more than 64GB, the swap space is depend on workload.
