Question

Why is swap usage stay zero always?

I created swap file using this tutorial (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-add-swap-on-ubuntu-14-04) step by step. But swap usage is staying zero, always.

Here is monit status:

  memory usage                      1481664 kB [72.2%]
  swap usage                        0 kB [0.0%]

Which step should I follow? Any solution?
