-current is not great for interactive use at all. The strategy of
pre-emptively dropping idle processes to swap is hurting .. big time.
Compare inactive memory to swap in this example ..
110 processes: 1 running, 108 sleeping, 1 zombie
CPU: 1.2% user, 0.0% nice, 4.3% system, 0.0% interrupt, 94.5% idle
Mem: 474M Active, 1609M Inact, 764M Wired, 281M Buf, 119M Free
Swap: 4096M Total, 917M Used, 3178M Free, 22% Inuse
PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE C TIME WCPU
1819 imb 1 28 0 213M 11284K select 1 147:44 5.97%
59238 imb 43 20 0 980M 424M select 0 10:07 1.92%
.. it shouldn't start randomly swapping out processes because they're
used infrequently when there's more than enough RAM to spare ..
It also shows up when trying to reboot .. on all of my gear, 90 seconds
of "fail-safe" time-out is no longer enough when a good proportion of
daemons have been dropped onto swap and must be brought back in to flush
their data segments :-(
