Swap doesnt work in gnome

Hi there its like my swap storage just doesn’t work and its 0 bytes of 17 GB

Hello @junux :wink:

Swap activated?

free -h

Normally it will only swap, if your RAM is full.


Swap is used well before RAM is full, it depends on swappiness parameter.

Mine is 60, means the kernel will copy RAM contents to swap when 60% of the RAM is used.

cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness

By the way, I have no swap partition nor swap file on my system, lol :slight_smile:
