Vagrantfile I have the following provider defined:
Excerpt from Vagrantfile:
config.vm.provider :virtualbox do |vb| vb.gui = false vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", "4096"] end
When I runn
free -m within the created VM I see the following report:
total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 3953 337 3615 0 18 119 -/+ buffers/cache: 199 3753 Swap: 0 0 0
Is it possible to assign swappiness when the VM is being built and provisioned?
I have tried setting
/etc/sysctl.conf and restarting the VM, but I do not see any affect of adding swap space to the VM.
Why do I need swap space? I would rather not deal with swap space at all and run everything in memory. However, for some applications (the composer project for PHP, for example) are notorious for using a lot of memory under certain conditions. Without swap space I have to be very liberal with the amount of memory I throw at a VM, if I had swap space--although it might not be as efficient--I would theoretically run into fewer issues.
