What's the right amount of swap space for a modern Linux system?

Swap space is one of those things that everyone seems to have an idea about, and I am no exception. All my sysadmin friends have their opinions, and most distributions make recommendations too. Many years ago, the rule of thumb for the amount of swap space that should be allocated was 2X the amount of RAM installed in the computer. Of course that was when a typical computer's RAM was measured in KB or MB. So if a computer had 64KB of RAM, a swap partition of 128KB would be an optimum size. read more

How to Check the File Integrity of a Downloaded Package in Linux

  • RoseHosting; By RoseHosting Blog (Posted by RoseHosting on Feb 10, 2019 5:38 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux
Part of using a Linux-based operating system is using the package manager of your Linux distribution to download and install new software. On CentOS/RHEL-based distributions for example, the EPEL repositories provide you with almost everything you need. And often when a pre-installed repository is unavailable, you can manually add it and the files will be downloaded securely after verifying it with a key.
