Guys, We are moving our physical server to a virtual server and the sys team have asked to re-evaluate the server spec as this server is old and isn't used as much as it was.
The problem I have is that this server has 128gb of physical memory and the swap space is set to 80gb which is to much tbh. I was hoping to just image the os onto the new virtual server to save time and reconfigure the swap as I only want to configure 60gb of memory so the question I am asking is should I be looking to reduce the swap or can I just leave as is or is it best for me to re-install a fresh os and configure it there. Can I actually reduce swap??
the version of Linux is 5.3 (Oracle Red hat Enterprise Linux (ORHEL)
