I've got 8GB of RAM in a dual-processor system.  Anyone care to suggest 
where to look first for this?   

$ netstat -m
18446744073709550172 mbufs in use
382/25600 mbuf clusters in use (current/max)
0/0/0 sfbufs in use (current/peak/max)
403 KBytes allocated to network
0 requests for sfbufs denied
0 requests for sfbufs delayed
0 requests for I/O initiated by sendfile
938 calls to protocol drain routines
