All guides wich i found tell about changing swap with systemctl, but manjaro uses systemd and there is no details in archwiki or google wich i found about changing swappines with systemd systems
Any clue how to change swappines on systemd-controles system (exclude changing default 60 in kernel code)
For temporarily change (to 10) you can use:
sysctl -w vm.swappiness=10
To make this change permanent you need create file:
Here you can find more details.
systemctl is, to quote, “Control the systemd system and service manager”, as in very much a part of systemd.
sysctl is to control kernel parameters.
But the example above of a ‘directory.d’ is a function of systemd …
.d folders can contain files that function as drop-in configurations or addendums.
Though I dont think I have seen swappiness managed through systemd/
systemctl … except maybe as dynamically set through a service or timer.
Google “manjaro swappiness” - the first result gives a solution.
sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/swappiness.conf <<< vm.swappiness=10
and this to check it is working after restart

Does number in filename matters ?
I tryed same thing in past but used 75 instead of 99, and it ain’t worked
