if it's local disk to host , +1 since we might get better performance
btw, the base file is in /var/lib/nova/instances/_base/swap_xxx, also need
to be considered

Best Regards!

Hi everyone,

		 Currently, disk.swap(the swapfile of instance) is created on
the instances_path(deflaut : /var/lib/nova/instances/<vm-uuid>). Maybe we
should add configuration item in nova.conf to set virtual machine swapfile
location. With such a feature enabled, swapfiles can be placed onto a
specified storage, e.g. a SSD, seperatedly.
