How to check whether Jira is using swap file or not?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Garbage Collector Performance Issues

Dear support team,

I am investigating the GC and to see how to improve the JIRA performance. I want to know how to check if JIRA is using the swap file or not?  Could you please guide me on this? Thanks a lot!
