Swap space

Dear All,

I have a swap space of 16G available in Sol 10. I have allocated it as a seperate file system. But when the RAM Is full used , the system gets rebooted and the swap is not being used,.

Any reasons for this.

you should know the size of RAM, swap may be 16G, 2g RAM and 14G as a slice, if that increase the value of RAM.

you can know the swap space by entering the command swap -s it will give you the statics of the attached slices or files to the swap swap and so you can add them and the result will be the swap space size
