6.6 添加交换分区

由 刘遄 创建, 最后一次修改 2019-04-20

SWAP(交换)分区是一种通过在硬盘中预先划分一定的空间,然后将把内存中暂时不常用的数据临时存放到硬盘中,以便腾出物理内存空间让更活跃的程序服务来使用的技术,其设计目的是为了解决真实物理内存不足的问题。但由于交换分区毕竟是通过硬盘设备读写数据的,速度肯定要比物理内存慢,所以只有当真实的物理内存耗尽后才会调用交换分区的资源。

交换分区的创建过程与前文讲到的挂载并使用存储设备的过程非常相似。在对/dev/sdb存储设备进行分区操作前,有必要先说一下交换分区的划分建议:在生产环境中,交换分区的大小一般为真实物理内存的1.5~2倍,为了让大家更明显地感受交换分区空间的变化,这里取出一个大小为5GB的主分区作为交换分区资源。在分区创建完毕后保存并退出即可:

[root@linuxprobe ~]# fdisk /dev/sdb
Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.23.2).
Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.
Be careful before using the write command.

使用SWAP分区专用的格式化命令mkswap,对新建的主分区进行格式化操作:

[root@linuxprobe ~]# mkswap /dev/sdb2
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 5242876 KiB
no label, UUID=2972f9cb-17f0-4113-84c6-c64b97c40c75

使用swapon命令把准备好的SWAP分区设备正式挂载到系统中。我们可以使用free -m命令查看交换分区的大小变化(由2047MB增加到7167MB):

[root@linuxprobe ~]# free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 1483 782 701 9 0 254
-/+ buffers/cache: 526 957
Swap: 2047 0 2047
[root@linuxprobe ~]# swapon /dev/sdb2
[root@linuxprobe ~]# free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 1483 785 697 9 0 254
-/+ buffers/cache: 530 953
Swap: 7167 0 7167

为了能够让新的交换分区设备在重启后依然生效,需要按照下面的格式将相关信息写入到配置文件中,并记得保存:

[root@linuxprobe ~]# vim /etc/fstab
