Red Hat website: Information? Subscription-only...

Alexander Bochmann Monday 06 of March, 2017
Not that I mind - if people absolutely want to use Red Hat, they should be paying for it...

Case in point: An article about recommendations for configuring swap on modern linux systems, which contains no useful information about why an admin should select 20% of the available memory as swap size - for that part, it links to a "solution document", which in turn requires a subscription...

Since "modern Linux" doesn't use swap as backing for crash dumps, there never was a reason to tie swap size to real mem in the first place. (And I don't think I've used - or even set up - kdump on any system in the past 10 years...)
