Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

The point I was making is it would be down to a lot of variables. If the system has most of it's RAM used and a large swap space it could be moving large amounts of swap as per my example.

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

You also have to bear in mind that flopswap is counting sequentially whereas free will move up and down as swappiness values will swap things in and out of swap.

Therefore I would expect flopswap...

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

No, thank you for the feedback. :)
