Seems sort of starved to me; 2GB of RAM yet you have enough processes active to have allocated all of that plus 2.6GB of swap! I wouldn't be surprised if occasionally you allocated another 3GB, which would max out your swap space. With only 120 processes total, you can probably just run top sorted by size (top -o size, or enter "osize" when it's running) and look for large ones. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
