Hi,

I have dedicated server where i will install: CloudLinux + WHM/cPanel + LiteSpeed; i will host 250 cPanel accounts aprox.

When i install CloudLinux, i don't know how many GB need have Swap's partition.

I contacted CloudLinux's support and they tell me should be fine with 8GB swap space. But i writed other big hosting business who recommend me 16GB.

I don't know which use, i need very good performance/speed in this server.

Please, tell me how many swap's size you recommend. Thank you very much friends.

I'll answer it in reverse. If you are using swap you're not going to get good performance.
Oh, why not will have good performance if use swap?. Please explain me for understand.

In this server have 128GB RAM. I will install: CloudLinux + WHM/cPanel + LiteSpeed. I will host 250 cPanel accounts aprox.

Thank you very much.
