My interpretation is that the 1-10 hours is how long it would take to troubleshoot the problem and the 5 minutes is how long it would take to get kitchen timer and put into socket. So slides are showing the two solutions (one techy and liable to take up to 10 hours vs. the hacky but fast solution). ‎ (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

At first I thought the ten hours was troubleshooting, but 5 minutes sounds about right for the granularity of the timer. Mikemk (talk) 06:51, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Of course, the problem could be solved without a reboot simply by increasing the swap size., my understanding is that the SWAP is overflowing and not just 'too little'. So no, simply increasing the swap size wouldn't solve the problem. 07:36, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

I agree, and have removed that sentence, because there is no way to be sure that increasing the swap size will help. In fact increasing the swap size is the first step down the '1-10 hours to troubleshoot' path. --Pudder (talk) 08:52, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
I think it deserves mention. Mikemk (talk) 09:37, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
