Re: Permanently disable swap on Raspbian Buster

This solved it for me: sudo systemctl disable dphys-swapfile.service free -m confirms a 0 swap file size after a reboot, from 93MB before! Some of that returns to the RAM though... Thanks! I have a hard time to reboot alot (almost every 2-3 days) because my swap is or are at 100mb. Don't raspberry ...

Re: Deluge stopped working on Raspbian

Mine has been running for about 8 months now since first installation... on a native USB boot RPi2B, updated/upgraded regularly. Only time it was turned off was during every 3 months "cleaning of RPi board" and HDD upgrade (it has 2 x 2TB 2.5" HDDs connected now). Another (newer) one is running on ...

Debian Buster was released so it changed to stable.

Run "sudo apt update --allow-releaseinfo-change" and it'll update it.
I too had problem with this and was stuck. Thank you for the solution. And thank you OP for starting this thread.

Re: Swap memory getting full after a few days.

Mhh... Transmission. https://github.com/transmission/transmission/issues/313 (don't miss the last comments, by a Pi3B+ user) Generally speaking and as IIRC, Raspbian has kernel tunables set to use as much RAM as possible and commit to disk as little as possible. Something akin to "laptop-mode". It ...

Re: Swap memory getting full after a few days.

I try to avoid swapping on my systems as much as possible. Most of my (light usage) Pis have no swap and don't need it. The high usage ones have USB disks and small swap files or partitions. If your system is swapping a lot, you are using the wrong system or you have a problem with code. I run seve...

Re: Swap memory getting full after a few days.

Well (and continuing the funny phrasing of talking about what you are and aren't "supposed" to do) You're not supposed to increase the swap size if it is (still) on the SD card. That's advice frequently given on this forum by the experts (people from RPF). That said, glad to hear that your drive is...

Re: Swap memory getting full after a few days.

If it is NTFS, you're probably going to have to copy the files somewhere else; reformat the drive, then copy them back. It might be worth plugging it into a Windows machine to see what Disk/Drive Manager might allow to be done; that's found within Computer management. That's the problem, it's in EX...

Re: Swap memory getting full after a few days.

Swap is old unused memory If you use system as fileserver, system move oldest unused memory to swapfile And free up memory for more cache disk. So even if it's 100% used that's ok? My raspberry won't slow down or crash or anything, it just going to make space for the next processor that needs space?

Re: Swap memory getting full after a few days.

You can increase the swap size by changing the CONF_SWAPSIZE parameter in /etc/dphys-swapfile followed by a reboot. On some a few systems I have been running with 1GB swap because of a very memory intensive job that would not complete with less. pi@raspi1:/etc $ cat dphys-swapfile # /etc/dphys-swap...

Okey so I need to get another USB with 2gb or more and use that as swap memory disk? Is there anyway I can partition my harddrive without formating it again? I have almost 1000gb in files so I would rather not formated it again. Unless your hard drive is formatted NTFS, you should be able to easily...

Re: Swap memory getting full after a few days.

100 Mb is the default - and it is what they (the infamous "they") recommend you keep it at if you are swapping to SD card (especially, as in the default configuration, you are swapping to the boot device). But I have found that 100 Mb is too small and if you are doing memory intensive stuff (e.g., ...

How much swap do you have?

(I ask, because the answer to your question is probably: You need more)
I have 100mb :) I've seen others say that swap never get used and that I shouldn't increase swap size on my SD card :/ ?

Swap memory getting full after a few days.

Hello and thank you for helping me out. I have a raspberry Pi 3B with Stretch installed, using it as a Plex media server with a 6tb harddrive. I've noticed yesterday that my swap memory was at 99% used and my ram was around 40% used. Is this common? I would understand if the memory was going up and ...

I can't be sure, but I'm guessing Transmission uses /tmp as an intermediary, and /tmp probably resides on your sdcard.
Okay, sorry for being stupid, but how can I see if that's the case, or can I make transmission to use another folder instead?

Thank you for taking your time and helping out :)
