    Moved -> Linux Programming board.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Great. Now look into /proc/swaps. It lists all active swap space, its type (partition or file, I think), its size, how much of that is used, and its priority.

    You'll want the used size, probably.
