How to resize Swap file

Resize Swap file size # Resize Swap to 8GB - Turn swap off This moves stuff in swap to the main memory and might take several minutes ```sh sudo swapoff -a ``` - Create an empty swapfile - Note that "1G" is basically just the unit and count is an integer. Together, they define the size. In this case 8GB. ```sh sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1G count=8 sudo mkswap /swapfile # Set up a Linux swap area sudo swapon /swapfile # Turn the swap on ``` - Check if it worked ```sh grep Swap /proc/meminfo ``` # GUI method for increasing the size of swap partition ```sh sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gparted && sudo gparted ``` # Reference - cover
