Under moderately high load i'm seeing a lot of swapping periodically through
the day (and then load avg going way, way up, of course). I'm wondering why
is there, with so much inactive memory, so much disk swapping?
The machine runs some fairly intense stuff, such as squid, postgresql, and

without swapping. What am I missing? Am i misinterpretting the stats, and
just not understanding how the vm works?
