my swap is not being used, no matter how full my RAM gets. This is my swapon output:
NAME TYPE SIZE USED PRIO
/dev/dm-2 partition 31,9G 3,5M -1
Could the PRIO -1 be a problem?
My swappiness is 60.
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/dev/dm-2 partition 33456124 3524 -1
I have 32GB of RAM and 32GB of swap, but currently when my memory runs my system will just lock up permanently rather than start swapping. Anything I can do about that?
Basically I am trying to run an application that will eat about 30GB of memory, while me physical memory is already half full. While it is booting up and loading data into memory my system just freezes, once the physical memory is full. And no it doesn't appear to just lock up while it is swapping, since even after a while doesn't unfreeze.
