Drobo

swapfile

Has anyone noticed that while the swapfile exists and is available to the system, it’s not actually ever used?

I’ve been running FUPPES (but that’s a whole other topic) and it had consumed almost all the available RAM on the device, but when running “free” the swpafile use was still at “0”

Any news on this?

Noticed the same thing. Anyone else ever seen swap file used? I am using a USB driver, and free always shows 0 for usage.

My guess is that the swap file is only used while performing tasks like moving data.

bump, I’ve noticed the same thing; and when I run enough apps (rsync/mediatomb/transmission/samba) the system locks

I really need to have the drobo start using the swap as it puts a very hard limit on what I can trust it to run.
