Swap and Cron Jobs
« on: October 13, 2017, 12:15:42 AM »
Hi Everyone.

System Info:
CPU Model: QEMU Virtual CPU version (cpu64-rhel6)
CPU Details: 2 Core (2100 MHz)
Ram 3 Gig
Distro Name: CentOS release 6.9 (Final)
Kernel Version: 2.6.32-696.10.2.el6.x86_64
Platform: x86_64 [kvm]

Issue: Swap keeps overloading after a couple of days uptime. I put in a cron to turn off and on the swap to clear it but the cron does not appear to be running. So the issue is two fold. Swap getting full after two days and cron not working. Any ideas?

Cron added through the control panel - Crontab

you need to check what is using it and if that is ok or the server is overloaded.
swap is usually used for things that are often required so ti could be good, but the check is required

Thanks, but I'm not as familiar with the commands to pull that info except the TOP and that didn't give much info.
