I am installing Oracle on a linux server running RH 5.x with 18gb of memory. According to the Oracle install guide it recommends a swap space equal to total memory or 18gb. Does it really require swap space of 18gb? If I allocate less space for swap (say 8gb), will that have any adverse effects?

Thanks in advance,
