Enabling Swap Partition in Azure Deployments

After completing the Azure deployment, you must enable the swap in your deployment.

To do this, perform the following steps:

  1. Modify the default parameters at /etc/waagent.conf to

ResourceDisk.Format=y

ResourceDisk.Filesystem=ext4

ResourceDisk.MountPoint=/mnt/resource

ResourceDisk.EnableSwap=y

ResourceDisk.SwapSizeMB=2048

The following screenshot displays the default parameters.

Note: You can set the ResourceDisk.SwapSizeMB parameter based on your requirement.

  1. Restart the waagent.service using the command: systemctl restart waagent.service

Note: To check the status of the swap use the command swapon --show.
