    setting swappiness in sysctl.conf doesn't seem to change anything

    HI,

    I'm setting the swappiness in debian jessie to vm.swappiness = 1 but its still 60 on reboot. I've never had this problem before and I've set the swappiness many many times (including my wife's ubuntu laptop just the other day). Anyone know what is going on?

    Don

    donarntz; Hi !

    How did you effect the change in swappiness ?
    Did you edit "/etc/sysctl.conf" ? For the desired change in value to be persistent.

    I got it here:

    They've changed it in Debian. They weren't very clear about it though.
