raid – Ubuntu 18.04, 1.5G Swap 100% used (32G RAM), soft RAID1. How to increase SWAP size?

I have a production server, recently, I have seen server becomes slow sometimes, and SSH is slow, and once get into the terminal, even press ENTER is slow.

When the server is OK, I checked the memory usage and CPU, CPU looks fine, RAM looks fine except SWAP is 100% used. I googled it seems SWAP should not be 100% used, maybe 50%.

So I would like to increase the SWAP size. But since this is a production server, and it has soft RAID1 configured, so I don’t want to mess it up until I am sure it is absolutely correct.

Here are the server configs:

CPU is E3-1245-V2, 32G RAM, 3x2T HDD

I was going to follow this tutorial https://linuxize.com/post/how-to-add-swap-space-on-ubuntu-18-04/ but I am afraid since I have soft raid1 here, I am not sure if the instructions above still apply, or it should work.

memory – (When) Is it a security concern if BIOS/UEFI uses/reserves much RAM?

BIOS, UEFI and hardware’s firmware ROMs are not very comforting sources for concern. On a system that I administer, a large amount of main system memory (9 of 512GB) is unavailable.

Next to the unfortunate loss of a valuable resource (main memory), I am concerned with the question how to evaluate this “opaque” memory that has been handed over to the UEFI/BIOS?

What is a normal memory footprint a system firmware should be, that would not be an instant raising-eye-brow with regard to security considerations?

boot – 2015 MacBook Air (13″ – 256 SSD, 8GB RAM)

This is my Wife’s Mac, and she has been complaining of general slowness for a while now. And I confirmed it and did the normal things: Safe Mode, clean caches, check the disk for errors, run the hardware diagnostics, zap the PRAM/NVRAM. The result: nothing found, still slow.

So time for a new Mac for her (a new MBA) and I scrub the drive on the old MBA clean of all data with disk utility, run first aid and (try to) reinstall macOS (Mojave)in the hopes that a clean reinstall will do the trick.

Internet Recovery mode errors out when trying to install Mojave from Apple’s servers (and a 30 minute boot), so I make a Mojave installer on a USB-3 flash drive and boot from that.

It takes almost an hour to boot the flash drive and even then the progress bar completes but nothing happens. So I built another installer and verified this one will boot an older Mac Mini I have. Works fine, but on the MBA same as before: an hour to complete booting but I never get the Install MacOS Mojave screen. It sits, completed on the black screen with a filled progress bar.

So Diagnostics finds nothing, disk first aid finds nothing, zapping the PRAM/NVRAM does nothing, and now I have an old MBA with no OS that won’t install a new OS and stumped as to what is going on. Not sure it is worth taking to Apple for repairs as repairs would likely cost more than the Mac is worth.

Any suggestions or even ideas what it might be?

5.0 lollipop – Android misreads RAM

I had an old Lenovo A7-30HC running android 5.0 OFW that I have recently put to use, it works as intended except for that it’s throwing an “android.process.acore has stopped” error, I tried to investigate a bit and I have found that in the storage section the ram is being read as a 1mb, I have no idea what might’ve caused this and I am thinking of flashing a custom rom but it’d be way better for me for it to stay the way it is and I am not even sure whether that will fix it or not, any ideas?
