Senior Vice President of Content
Managing swap files and partitions on your systems will be a common system administration task. In this activity, the student will be asked to create and enable a swapfile with the 'dd' utility, enable it with the 'mkswap' and 'swapon' commands then configure the system so it is available on reboot. At the conclusion, the student will understand how to work with swap files when needed to augment system memory.
