Am I having too much swap? [closed]

Am I having too much swap space if my server is a 8GB physical ram and I would like to set my swap to 16GB. I am planning to use this server for shared hosting would like know.

Answer

Best practices say you should have some swap, but if you’re using a lot of swap, it’s highly likely that you have under-provisioned RAM on your system. I tend to never devote more than 2GB of swap to a system, regardless of the amount of physical RAM available.
