Create additional swap partitions: Linux System Engineer: Advanced Disk Systems and System Backup

In Linux it's very easy to add additional swap partitions. We take a standard partition, initialize the swap space on it, and then turn it on. We can also set the swap priority. Swap space strategies could include putting the swap space on a fast solid state disk or by placing the swap space near busiest part of the disk if you're using rotating platter disks. This speeds up access time if the system starts using swap.
