<title>Description</title>
<para>A unit configuration file whose name ends in
<filename>.swap</filename> encodes information about a
swap device or file for memory paging controlled and
supervised by systemd.</para>
<para>This man page lists the configuration options
specific to this unit type. See
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemd.unit</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>
for the common options of all unit configuration
files. The common configuration items are configured
in the generic [Unit] and [Install] sections. The swap
specific configuration options are configured in the
[Swap] section.</para>
<para>Swap units must be named after the devices they
control. Example: the swap device
<filename>/dev/sda5</filename> must be configured in a
unit file <filename>dev-sda5.swap</filename>. For
details about the escaping logic used to convert a
file system path to a unit name see
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemd.unit</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>.</para>
</refsect1>
<refsect1>
<title><filename>fstab</filename></title>
<para>Swap units may either be configured via unit
files, or via <filename>/etc/fstab</filename> (see
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>fstab</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>
for details).</para>
<para>If a swap device or file is configured in both
<filename>/etc/fstab</filename> and a unit file the
configuration in the latter takes precedence.</para>
</refsect1>
<refsect1>
<title>Options</title>
<para>Swap files must include a [Swap] section, which
carries information about the swap device it
supervises. The options specific to the [Swap] section
of swap units are the following:</para>
<variablelist>
<varlistentry>
<term><varname>What=</varname></term>
<listitem><para>Takes an absolute path
of a device node or file to use for
paging. See
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>swapon</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry>
for details. If this refers to a
device node a dependency on the
respective device unit is
automatically created. (See
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemd.device</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>
for more information.) If this refers
to a file a dependency on the
respective mount unit is automatically
created. (See
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemd.mount</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>
for more information.) This option is
mandatory.</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
<varlistentry>
<term><varname>Priority=</varname></term>
<listitem><para>Swap priority to use
when activating the swap device or
file. This takes an integer. This
setting is optional.</para></listitem>
