I have seen people asking question about the necessity of swap space with various amounts of RAM installed, but my question is one to two orders of magnitude larger in the respect of installed RAM.
The machine in question was used as a virtual machine host server. For that purpose I had 128GB of RAM installed, and that was just about enough (peak memory usage was around 119GB)
Now this machine is decommissioned as virtual machine host and I am giving it Ubuntu Desktop to repurpose it as my power workstation that can crunch through big compiling tasks (e.g. Linux kernel) or multimedia rendering tasks (e.g. for uploading to YouTube) since it is such a powerhouse with dual Xeon E5-2620v2 processors (12 cores total, 24 threads)
Now with 128GB of RAM installed and since there is nowhere else those ECC RAM modules can go to, this Ubuntu installation is receiving full 128GB ECC RAM.
With that RAM space which is double the SSD space in my (another) daily driver workstation (as this behemoth of a workstation is a major power hog running it as my daily driver wouldn't be ecnomical,) do I need any swap space on this powerhouse in perceivable future?
