    Subjectminimizing swap usage

    Can someone give me a pointer to how I can avoid somethign like this:

    foo@bar]$ free -m
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 249 245 4 0 6 136
    -/+ buffers/cache: 102 147
    Swap: 243 89 153

    What's with all the caching when my apps crawl because it's swapping so
    much ? I've tried to adjust /proc/vm/kswapd parameters but that doesn't
    seem to help..I'd like to postpone the swapping until its almost out of
    physical memory..

    best regards
