    No, 250Mb is too low for /boot today. It would be better to have 500Mb for /boot. And 12Gb for swap imho is a waste of the disk space. If your system utilizes even a half of 12Gb of swap hardly it will be any longer usable, you most likely will need to reboot your server due to too high server load.

    I don't use swap on my servers, and it's OK for me.

    They suggest https://itsfoss.com/swap-size/ 3Gb of swap for 12Gb RAM

    Yes indeed, 500 MB is better nowadays. DA needs to adjust that help section.
