Previous: 3.5 Swapping In (rw_swap_page)
To simplify the task of setting the parameters for the compressed
swap we have also implemented a diver that allows the superuser to
modify the following parameters when the swap is off.
- Virtual space size:
- maximum number of compressed pages that the
system will be able to handle (MAX_VPAGES).
- Cache size:
- the number of Kbytes used for caching.
- Cleaning threshold:
- the percentage of full buffers the system
needs to find to perform a cleaning operation.
