Is disabling SWAP recommended?

Hi there. I have a Cubox-i4 with 2gb of ram that under normal and after a couple of weeks of use it barely hits the 800 ram mark, therefore i removed the swap partition and set swapiness to 0. Is this recommended?

You don't have to set swappines to 0 if you have no swap. If you know you won't run out of memory it is probably a good idea.
