    I just checked my system:

    8:35pm up 1:09, 8 users, load average: 0.35, 0.19, 0.11
    71 processes: 70 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
    CPU states: 6.9% user, 15.5% system, 22.3% nice, 77.7% idle
    Mem: 63272K av, 60496K used, 2776K free, 34024K shrd, 11132K buff
    Swap: 50396K av, 36K used, 50360K free 21616K cached

    It is EXTREMELY rare when swap gets used on my system (even after several
    days uptime and many netscape sessions). I haven't done much in this
    period of uptime.
