Configure Swap area for Oracle database

Configure Swap Area according to formula for Oracle

According to the Installation manual and Note 169706.1. The swap space needs
to be configured as follows:

If RAM = 1024MB to 2048Mb
then 1.5 times RAM
elseif RAM > 2048MB and 8192MB
then .75 times RAM

Following example show all the three cases:

1. IF RMAM is 2GB then it lies in 1st condition as per formula then swap area should be 2*1.5= 3 GB

2. If RAM is 4 GB then it lies in 2nd condition as per formula then swap area should be  4 *1 = 4 GB.

3. IF RMAN is 10 GB then it lies in 3rd condition as per formula then swap are should be 10*0.75=7.5 GB
