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
