mkdir -p /var/lib/swap
3 – Second process should be creating a new file as “swapfile” with 128 MB file size.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/lib/swap/swapfile bs=1M count=128
4 – Initialize the swap file with below command
5 – Now continue with activating the new swap file
6 – Lets check the swap size status again , we should see the new swap file like below screen
7 – Any time we can disable this swap file with following command
8 – If we want to get this swap file as permenant then we have to add below line to “/etv/fstab” file otherwise this swap defination will be only temporary till next system reboot.
