Swap file guidance

This post was originally published on this site

Hi all,

 

Our current setup is the following, Windows 10 1809, 6GB of memory(100% reserved) and 2vCPU. All are Instant Clones running on a vSAN environment with dedup+compression enabled. Every now and then we’d get reports of people getting booted out of VDI, but haven’t had a chance to really dig into the issue till recent. What we learned was the machine runs out of virtual memory, then blast crashes, thus booting the user out of their session. We’ve heard years ago from an instructor that you shouldn’t use a swap file, and you should reserve 100% memory. Does this best practice still hold true today?

 

Thanks,

Mike
