Swap status question
Here's the output of the free command:
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 900424 894108 6316 0 48028 623204
-/+ buffers/cache: 222876 677548
Swap: 530104 264660 265444
I'm at a loss as far as how to figure out what is residing in swap. I used to
just look at ps, and anything in ()'s would be an item which was swapped out.
ps on that system doesn't indicate anything's in swap that way.
Because everything uses pages, does this mean that there's really no way to
gather an idea of what's going on there?
Also, it seems extreme to have 620MB of data cached to place 256M into swap.
Thanks for any thoughts/ideas.
