How to disable swap partition

To see your swap usage run the following:

free -m

To disable swap without reboot and just temporary run the following:

sudo swapoff -a

This will wipe out used swap space and disable it

To get this enabled again run next:

sudo swapon -a

To disable swap permanently you need to edit /etc/fstab as root and comment out a line related to swap

For example:

cat /etc/fstab |grep swap

# swap was on /dev/nvme0n1p6 during installation
#UUID=d10c1d70-bb88-43fc-bbe2-e17592b660ba none swap sw 0 0

Then reboot your machine to apply the change or try to run next:

mount -a

To reboot run:

reboot

Enjoy!
