    Subjectswapping in 2.6.24-rc5-git3
    Hello,

    does /proc/sys/vm/swappiness still work as expected?
    # /proc/sys/vm# cat swappiness
    0

    but scp-ing 2GB file causes many processes are swapped out due to increase of
    the file cache size. Why? This is totally catastrophic behaviour on the desktop.

    Is there a way to avoid it except turning off the swap?
