Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 98137
Max Swap Size
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:23:51 EDT
Description of problem:
With reference to the above URL, a customer suggests that the section
entitled "Recommended Partitioning Scheme" should be clearer and state that the
max size for a Swap partition is 2GB. Please also mention that if the user
requires more than 2GB for Swap partition, they should create more than 1 swap
This is because this customer have 4 GB of RAM and as recommended by this
section, their swap partition should be at least equal to the amount of RAM on
their system which is 4GB but they failed to create a swap partition bigger
than 2GB and wonder what they should do. They couldn't find the information in
this manual on how to solve this by creating an additional swap partition.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Please refer to the manual.
Great suggestion, thanks for submitting it. I've added this information to the
swap partition recommendations. The new information will be available in the
next release of the Installation Guide.
