Yeah, amtm itself does not require a swap file, third party apps however may do.Skynet, an 'essential' amtm script, requires a 2GB swap file.
Also, a swap file is required and not a swap partition, for amtm to work properly.
While amtm does not offer to create a swap partition, it can certainly recognise one that was created manually by a user.i disagree, the firewall will block nasties already. the only benefit is if you are running any public facing services and want to block "known" baddies
amtm doesn't require swap to be used, but if you do use swap you are correct that amtm works with swap files and not partitions
