Re: Swap is eaten up

It is a bit unclear what your problem is. If the
problem just is, that you are running out of swap,
then the solution would be to add more swap.
If there is a leak, then that will of course not
help. In that case take a look on the size of the
virtual memory of the different processes:
grep VmSize /proc/*/status
And when you have a candidate, which may be the
culprit, then take a look on the maps pseudofile.
If the system is slowed down because of constant
disk access, then look for processes in non-
If memory presure is too high, then add more
memory or look for the processes with the highest
residen set sizes.
