Re: Increasing Swap

Unless I'm mistaken, swap in the 2.2 and 2.4 kernels only gets used when you
run out of RAM. So if you are upping your RAM and not upping the number of
tasks you run, there would be no need to increase swap. Less reason if
anything, but disk space is too cheap to make it worth repartitioning

You really need to know how much of ram and/or swap you generally use. With
Windows NT/2K, the Task Manager's Performance tab tells you this (Commit
Charge, Total used currently, Peak used overall, and Limit of ram and swap
together). How does one determine this with Linux?
