Is there a way to stop active swap disks, so that they can move their load to other swap disks?
Server being migrated from old SAN arrays to a new array. Secondary swap is currently in use as swap disks on the old array and the new array.
From below list, I want to stop sda2 and sda3, but they have a multi-threaded load with primary swap. I'm assuming that only a reboot will let me drop them (already commented out in fstab).
# swapon -s Filename Type Size Used Priority /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol03 partition 2097144 368892 2 /dev/sda1 partition 28846072 368520 2 /dev/sda2 partition 28846072 368364 2 /dev/sdj1 partition 29360120 0 -1 /dev/sdj2 partition 29360120 0 -2
