Re: [Xen-users] Swap: create or not?

When creating a DomU I've always set a swap.

So do I, but I guess it's partly because "I've always done it that way"

Do you think it is necessary to have a swap in the DomU?

It's as necessary as it would be on a non-virtualised machine with the same amount of memory and same workload. That is, if you need it then it's necessary, if you don't then it isn't :-/
