# Recommended Partitioning Scheme for RHEL 7

Recommended Partitioning Scheme for RHEL 7:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/installation_guide/sect-disk-partitioning-setup-x86#sect-recommended-partitioning-scheme-x86

/boot partition - recommended size at least 1 GiB

root - recommended size of 10 GiB

/home - recommended size at least 1 GiB

swap partition - recommended size at least 1 GB

Table 8.3. Recommended System Swap Space

Amount of RAM in the systemRecommended swap spaceRecommended swap space if allowing for hibernation
less than 2 GB2 times the amount of RAM3 times the amount of RAM
2 GB - 8 GBEqual to the amount of RAM2 times the amount of RAM
8 GB - 64 GB4GB to 0.5 times the amount of RAM1.5 times the amount of RAM
more than 64 GBworkload dependent (at least 4GB)hibernation not recommended

At the border between each range listed above (for example, a system with 2 GB, 8 GB, or 64 GB of system RAM), discretion can be exercised with regard to chosen swap space and hibernation support. If your system resources allow for it, increasing the swap space can lead to better performance.

Distributing swap space over multiple storage devices - particularly on systems with fast drives, controllers and interfaces - also improves swap space performance.

Many systems have more partitions and volumes than the minimum listed above. Choose partitions based on your particular system needs. See Section 8.14.4.4.1, “Advice on Partitions” for more information.
