News: Cloud 01- Linux swap Storage Issues

Published: 11/25/2016 Back

7:46AM CST - We are working through an issue with the Linux swap storage device taking errors. If you have a Linux server you can use the 'swapoff -a' command to prevent it from using swap which will stop the errors if you are seeing any and later reenable it via 'swapon -a' once the issue is remedied. This will not work however if you are commonly overusing your server's RAM forcing it to use disk as memory storage; in this case it is recommended you upgrade your server's RAM allocation for highest performance as using disk for swap space is far less desirable as disk acess is slower than RAM.
