I can't give any technical references, but i can say what i did. When the installer complained about wanting 18gb of swap for our HP-UX Itanium Oracel install, i tried to bypass it with only 4gb. It worked fine. The SA said he couldn't get to expanding it right away, and i got impatient. Just my experience.

Subject: Swap Space

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