How can i increase swap memory in my case? And how many GB i have to add? enter image description here

  • What makes you think you need more swap? Currently it looks good to me, I mean, you have ~3GB free RAM. – PerlDuck Nov 30 '18 at 11:22
  • just because I saw that virtual memory is almost full. However, if I create a swap file does not make the situation worse? – bob3321 Nov 30 '18 at 17:36

About the amount of swap you need, see this discussion: I have 16GB RAM. Do I need 32GB swap? It highly depends on your usage of the machine.

About how to increase swap memory: you can use GParted and see from there if you have some unallocated partition that you can use. If this is not the case, you can also use a swap file. See here for details: How to increase swap space?
