How to mount NTFS partition in RHEL-6

 The Linux kernel added a new kernel parameter called swappiness to let administrators tweak the way Linux swaps. It is a number from 0 to 100.In essence, higher values lead to more pages being swapped, and lower values lead to more applications being kept in memory, even if they are idle.The swappiness parameter controls the tendency of the kernel to move processes out of physical memory and onto the swap disk. Because disks are much slower than RAM, this can lead to slower response times for system and applications if processes are too aggressively moved out of memory.The default value for swappiness is 60. You can alter it either temporarily or permanently.

To see the current swappiness value

[ root @ leolinux ~ ]#   cat     /proc/sys/vm/swappiness

 

To change it terporarily 

[ root @ leolinux ~ ]#   echo   50   >    /proc/sys/vm/swappiness

 

To change swappiness permanently 

[ root @ leolinux ~ ]#   vim   /etc/sysctl.conf 

 vm.swappiness = 40
 
ESC
:wq!
 
[ root @ leolinux ~ ]#   sysctl    -p
