    I have 50 GB RAM Do I need swap Memory? I read many places that the rule of thumb for swap space is to double the amount of physical RAM. I am using KVM, 10 CPUs and 50 GB RAM with SSD. Do I need still swap Memory at all with this high amount of physical RAM? Do you swap recommendation for performance ?

    Hello,

    That type of question is better asked on a website such as StackOverflow where discussions of system performance tuning occur. You can also find a list of system administration services should you decide to consult with a qualified system administrator at:

    Thank you.
