This is about Windows, but I'm sure it applies to other OS as well.
I've heard people say that if you want better performance, you should avoid swap file fragmentation. To do this, you can either manually specify a constant size for the swap file, or even move it to a dedicated partition/disk.
Will this really give any performance benefits? After all - the swap file is accessed in a randomized manner anyway, what's a bit more randomization? And if you're considering a separate disk for the swap file, then you would be far better off investing your money in more RAM instead. Unless you happen to get a free disk of course.
So - is there a point in fighting swap file fragmentation or not?
