"Fly swapping or as it should be called, Swap on-the-Fly allows the addition of swap space as and when needed. This is very handy if you have just ran out of Memory while trying to do a big compile or, more often, you mis-configured your swap at installation and ran out of memory before even X starts.

Though this process is by no means a solution to the problem (there are speed implications) it is non the less a nice quick fix, and I have used this method on many Unix variants."
