I had always used the rule of thumb for putting 1.5 swap to RAM on Linux Servers We are installing OEL 5.2, 10G 3 node RAC cluster with 64G of RAM.

When I looked at the Metalink install doc 421038.1 it says:

Between 1024 MB and 2048 MB
1.5 times the size of RAM

Between 2049 MB and 8192 MB
Equal to the size of RAM

More than 8192 MB
0.75 times the size of RAM

Has anyone installed this and what are you using.

Have you also used hugepages?
