How To Check If Swap Is Working

How do you check if your Linux swap partition is activated?

I stumbled upon these ridiculous answers quite by accident. Good grief.....

A simple command, "swapon -s" would do.

I can't show you mine, as I don't have one - I don't need one. :-)

Always good to know the shortcuts. I used to do "history | grep WANT" but now I just do (Ctrl)r. It really saves a lot of time to know and use the key shortcuts. Hunting through menus is slow. I do as much of my work as possible with console commands or scripts.
