Default Get Kernal Swap File

A simple question. How does one find the file path to the kernel swap device? `swapctl -l` returns this as "swap_device", I want to know what the actual path is (eg /dev/sd0b).

Default

On OpenBSD, the default swap partition is 'b' on the root disk.. additional partitions and files can be configured using swapctl(8) or specified in fstab(5).
