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
