which file is affected?

Windows virtual machines use a page file and Linux virtual machines use a swap partition for virtual memory.

When you are determining the appropriate size for these, which file is affected?

The -flat vmdk file

The vswp file

The service console swap partition

The vmdk file

The -flat.vmdk file. This is the default large virtual disk data file that is created when you add a virtual hard drive to your VM that is not an RDM. When using thick disks, this file will be approximately the same size as what you specify when you create your virtual hard drive. Since both the Windows page file and Linux swap partition are located on the virtual disk, the -flat.vmdk file will be affected.
