I have an application on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon). It uses mysql as back end. Some time back the server response slowed down and the pages took ages to load. The reason was tracked down to low memory. So the memory was upgraded from 2GB to 4GB.
But the problem recurred. I noticed that the swap memory is not being used. What could be the reason ? How can I make the OS to use swap memory ?
free -m total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 4017 3999 17 0 192 3614 -/+ buffers/cache: 193 3824 Swap: 4094 0 4094
from the free output we see that your system has enough cached memory so it does
not need to use swap.Linux and me it's a love story
