Well if it's getting swapped out then it's clearly not being used effectively.

Is it really that easy if 3 different cache algorithms (PG cache, kernel buffers and swapping) are competing for the same chips?


There are APIs to bar swapping out pages and the tests could be run without swap. I suggested it only as an experiment though, there are lots of details between here and having it be a good configuration for production use.
