 Reduce swappines


The swap tendancy is way to high in Linux Mint.

You can reduce it by following these steps:

-open a terminal en type: cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness

The tendancy is probably '60', what good is for servers but is to high for normal users

-type in terminal:  gksudo gedit /etc/sysctl.conf  (in mate you use pluma instead of gedit)

-add at the bottom of that text file, the following lines (copy and paste):

#
# Reduce the swap tendency
vm.swappiness = 10

 

-save the file and restart the computer.

 

The rule is:

1GB RAM or more: set the swappiness to 10

Less then 1GB: set the swappiness to 1
