The systax below is what I used to create additional swap space.
below that that is a statement that I was looking for to determine if
I should create additional swap.
"you can add an additional swap device or partition, but you CANNOT make the
existing swap space bigger! "
Thanks to all responded. (big help and it worked....)
mkfile 300m /pathto/filename
swap -a /pathto/filename
add to /etc/vfstab
/pathto/filename - - swap - no -
