How to Increase Swap Space

Postby hr-ethadmin » Wed Oct 02, 2013 11:35 am

Using following command we can increase swap space on linux server.

dd if=/dev/zero of=/extraswap bs=1M count=1024

replacing 512 with the number of megabytes you want in your auxiliary swap file.

mkswap /extraswap


pico /etc/fstab
/extraswap none swap sw 0 0


swapon /extraswap
