Didnt use swap memory in CentOS 5.4
I found out that my CentOS 5.4 linux does not use any swap memory!!
here is the #top output:
top - 10:02:49 up 27 min, 5 users, load average: 4.22, 3.45, 2.24
Tasks: 173 total, 4 running, 166 sleeping, 0 stopped, 3 zombie
Cpu(s): 71.1%us, 26.1%sy, 0.0%ni, 0.2%id, 0.0%wa, 2.7%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st
Mem: 3081388k total, 1729216k used, 1352172k free, 69544k buffers
Swap: 5140760k total, 0k used, 5140760k free, 865316k cached
I wonder why swap memory is not used! I also face auto-restart issue while running few tasks. Does it relate to the swap memory???
uanme -r -> 2.6.18-164.el5
I remember that my i have allocated about 5G for swap memory. However I put it into different partition and far away from root partition due to diskspace partition.
Does it matter?
I do not know how to show the swap memory partition or partition map over here.
here is the mount output
/dev/sda2 on / type ext3 (rw)
