SubjectSwap strangeness: total VIRT ~23mb for all processes, swap 91156k used - impossible?
Date
I am playing with 'small/beautiful stuff' like
bbox/uclibc.

I ran oom_trigger soon after boot and took
"top b n 1" snapshot after OOM kill.

Output puzzles me: total virtual space taken by *all*
processes is ~23mb yet swap usage is ~90mb.

How that can be? *What* is there? Surely it can't
be a filesystem cache because OOM condition reduces that
to nearly zero.

top output
(note: some of them are busybox'ed, others are compiled
against uclibc, some are statically built with dietlibc,
rest is plain old shared binaries built against glibc):
