Default is for swapfile sizes to double after swapfile1
Authored by: macmath on Dec 16, '03 03:29:49PM

From makern's above post
<i> checked the vm directory & found 6 swap files: 64MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB & 512MB. </i>

Actually, the 6th swapfile should be 1024 MB, as the size of each new file is the sum of the sizes of all of the earlier swapfiles. Said another way, starting with swapfile2, the size of each swapfile is double the size of the previous swapfile.
