That's really "impressive"...
I had to open 70+ tabs with "Flash" content running in order
to get Opera start using swap - on a PC with 2 GB RAM, plus
2 GB swap partition. I made a terminal capture for this
1 [|||| 7.9%] Tasks: 73, 0 thr; 1 running
2 [| 2.6%] Load average: 0.38 0.70 0.42
Mem[|||||||||||||||||||1601/1990MB] Uptime: 00:52:33
Over time, swap did increase a little bit, but hardly any
CPU load - mostly I/O load.
The system kept being basically responsive, but the browser
was no fun to interact with until the "Flash" processes
were forcedly killed. :-)
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
