swapfiles & memory
On every megabyte in swapspace, how much does it take the space in the
memory (RAM)? Is the two times the amount of memory rule basically the
maximum? Problem is, I keep getting "Out of socket memory" error, and
usually the system crashes (I installed lkcd, though) in less than a week.
I have 450 meg. swap on a 129 meg. system; could that be the cause of the
socket memory error?
I think if there's really a limit on how much you can setup for your
swapfile, it would be better to have it so; say, when the system is
booting, the kernel calculates the allocated swapspace and provides some
warnings about the situation. I use 2.4.20, and as I have gathered from the
net, such socket memory errors are not supposed to happen.
Thanks in advance,
