Most of the previous 2.6 kernels I was running on these servers would be lightly hitting swap by now. This definitely looks better to me.

It sounds worse to me. "Lightly hitting swap" is good. It gets rid of stuff,
freeing up physical memory.

Andrew, it looks like you're right. This[1] server doesn't seem to be hitting swap enough. But my other[2] file server is doing great with it on the other hand (though, it hasn't swapped at all).

Maybe a little tuning is in order?

Any patches I should try?
