    on our servers it arrived only when the swap is used. for exemple:
    there is too many requests on the web server, machine begins to swap,
    after 3-4 minutes we have the first VM errors. it is too late.
    the solutions: reboot server / unplug cable / cut port 80 on the router
    and wait ... after 3-4 minutes server rebegins to work finely. If you do
    not touch the swap you have never this problem. another solution is to
    put lot of ram ;)
