how_to_change_swappiness

The swappiness parameter value is stored in a simple configuration text file located in /proc/sys/vm and is named “swappiness”. If you navigate there through the file manager, you will be able to locate the file and open it to check your system's swappiness. You can also check it or change it through the terminal (which is faster) by typing the following command:

sysctl vm.swappiness=10

..or whatever else between “0” and “100” instead of the value “10” that the example code used.
