-It is highly recommended to make some form of permanent storage available for FreshTomato. A swap partition can prevent several types of insufficient RAM symptoms, such as system instability, failing processes, and in very severe cases, even spontaneous reboots. All this will depend largely on the network load and on FreshTomato's configuration. Some functions require much more RAM than others, and higher network traffic will put more load on the router and require more RAM than lower traffic. USB storage is an excellent way of providing swap space.+A swap partition can prevent several types of insufficient RAM symptoms, such as system instability, failing processes, and in very severe cases, even spontaneous reboots.

 This example assumes you are using either an ARM or MIPS build with USB support. It is also assumes that you have already have USB support enabled. If you're not sure how to enable USB support, check the [[:usb_support|USB Support]] wiki page. This example assumes you are using either an ARM or MIPS build with USB support.
