Description

The default swap size on Raspberry Pi OS is 100MB and my use case requires a little bit more than that. This is a guide to show how to increase the swap file size on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian Bullseye)

Increase Swap

  • Turn the swap off:
    sudo dphys-swapfile swapoff
    
  • Edit the dphys-swapfile config:
    sudo nano /etc/dphys-swapfile
    
    • And change the following:
      CONF_SWAPSIZE=1024
      
  • Update the swap file:
    sudo dphys-swapfile setup
    
  • Start the swap file:
    sudo dphys-swapfile swapon
