Here is an excerpt from the man page:
The following example shows a swap file entry in an /etc/fstab file:
/dev/rz0b swap2 ufs sw 0 0
The following command adds the /dev/rz0b block device file as swap

The answer is that you can either enlarge your existing swap space
or create a second swap space. COMPAQ Tru64 UNIX doesn't support
using a regular file as a swap area. It has to be raw partition.
Usually it is partition "b" of your system disk. One method to
increase the swap space is to repartition the system disk so that
partition "b" is larger. The other is to find another disk
partition to use as a second swap space.
Depending on why you wish to enlarge your swap space, changing to
"lazy" (aka "overcommitment") mode may solve your problem without
you having to increase your swap space.
Hope this helps,

I am using SCO OpenServer 5.0.4 on a compaq prolian 4500 server. The
initial swap space setup is too small. I want to increase the swap
I first create a directory say '/hotswap' and inside the hotswap
directory, I created a empty file called 'swapfile2'. I then make the
file swapfile2 act as a swap space
swap -a /hotswap/swapfile2 65536
When I used 'swap -l' to list the current swap space, it appears to have
added to the system. But when I check the system disk space, it appear
to be the same as before the swap file is added to the system.
path swaplo block free
/dev/swap 1,41 0 196668 186790
/hotswap/swapfile2 76,1 0 65536 65536
Can someone tell if I done it correctly? If not, how should I do it ?
Thank in advance
