Using a Dedicated Swapfile Partition to Speed Up MacOS X

Using a Dedicated Swapfile Partition to Speed Up MacOS X. This article talks about how to create a separate partition for the swap files OS X creates. Most Unix systems require your swap files to be written to their own swap partitions, which are usually as large as the amount of RAM you have. Mac OS X does not require a separate swap partition, but some argue that having one would improve system performance.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
