SubjectRe: linux-2.4.13 high SWAP
Just thought that I would add our experience.

We have experienced the same kind of swap symptoms described, however we
have no mounted tmpfs, or ramfs partitions. We have, in fact,
experienced the same symptoms on the 2.4.2,2.4.5,2.4.7 and 2.4.12
kernel, haven't yet tried the 2.4.13 kernel. The symptoms include hung
processes which can not be killed, system cannot right to disk, and
files accessed during this time are filled with binary zeros. As sync
does not work as well, the only resolution is to do a reboot -f -n.

All systems are comprised of exclusively SGI XFS partitions, with dual
pentium II/III processors.

Any insight would be helpful,
