Description of problem:
rhevm-appliance has no swap by default, this is contrary to
where a system with 16GiB of RAM should have at least 8GiB of swap.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHV using the hosted engine (rhevm-appliance)
2. launch free -m on the appliance
swap is required especially since additional tools must be installed on the manager (3rd party backup tools, etc) which might increase memory pressure.
I am trying to understand whether this change has any impact on the documentation.
The Planning and Prerequisites Guide already mentions the swap partition,
Although this section does not specifically mention the self-hosted engine, the latter references this section in the introductory chapter of the guide:
So, can you please clarify whether the table that appears in the guide was actually incorrect for the Self-hosted engine?
For 4.2, is the table actually correct as it is?
The table is correct as-is
This RFE is about adding a swap partition to the engine virtual appliance. It increases the storage requirements for the hosted engine (on shared storage) to 58GB instead of 50GB.
* disk resized to 58G (swap 8G)
