    questions about SWAP file on Linux Advance SERver 2.1

    I will reconfigure the Linux 2.1 O/S and I have question about the SWAP file. From what I know, Oracle suggest to have the SWAP space has to be at least 400m or twice of the amount of the physical RAM (whichever is greater), in my case, I have 2G ram on the server, so I should have 4G for the SWAP file, right ????

    I am not Linux admin, I did configure Linux 7.3 professional before to run 9i database and everything works fine, my company make me do this again even I am not system admin here, is there anything I need to watch out for this configuration for Linux as well as installing Oracle???

    thanks

    I think that 2GB or even 1GB will be perfectly enough for you.

    If you have lot of disks available you can even set it to 4GB. If not 1 or 2 GB will be enough too.

    I was tasked with this job in my last employment despite not being a sys admin, and found this document very helpful:
