swap partition size regarding to kernel panic ?
I last days i reading a lot information about creating software RAID 1 massives under linux, and in one document in russian ( looks it translate from english, but not contains any link to original) i found advice to create swap partition with minimum size of RAM *1.25, because, as they wrote, in such a kernel panic, for all ram amount must be entire on swap partition, because if not, can be data damage in next partition space on HDD.... ( it means, when encaounter a kernel panic situation, kernel puts all RAM contain to swap file / partition).
can anyone, who is close with "how kernel works in low level", comment this? it is a real thing, or myth?
