We used Xen before which was easier to work than openvz it seems.
I am a bit stuck by the amount of swap I should create.
Firstly it's a 32GB server. What should the swap size be set to or is recommended.
All the wikis and forums say set it to x 2 but that means 64GB.
Isn't that insanely huge?
It depends on yourself or your application.
Swap RAM is a lot slower than real RAM since it's based on the hard drive not RAM. If you really want performance, increase your "real" RAM.
Yes but lets say I want to store VPS's on this server. Should I use 64GB of ram or just 32+2 = 34GB? or just 2GB?
How much VPS'es of how much RAM do you want to make?
This is a test server but I am basically trying to finalize my plans for launching VPS solutions in south africa for our company. Need submit various options and plans to my manager by tomorrow
Hence want it perfect and just stuck at this point
Well they will be around 20 VPS with around 1GB each
32GB "real" RAM will be enough for them.
So much RAM ... why do you need it?
I can't see the need for 64 gb swap space unless you're eventually going to oversell the crap out of it or you're providing massive VPS hosting. Even half of your installed RAM would still be a lot.
