How to check SWAP space





zarky
My Linux system (With Oracle installed) keep on warning the free swap space is below 10%. How can I check which process used the swapspace. And how can free up the swap space.

Thanks for input

there are a couple of ways to check you swap and memory usage

one is the 'top' command.

you just open a console terminal and type top

you will see a details list of ruuning applications and their respective memory usage.

to kill those misbehaving applications just take note of the appplication's PID and type k PID.

for example if the misbehaving application's PID is 3698 you type k 3698

to wuit top type q

another way to view your swap usage is typing in a console:

'more /proc/meminfo'

without the quotes of course


There are probably better methods but this gives you a fair idea of what
happens...

Nearly any system monitoring software can present used swap space.
(I'd suggest embiggening your swap partition. Mine is 2GB)
