Actually, I misspoke in an earlier post, our GC server is actually only at 2GB or RAM. Running at present. Server has been up for 84 days and swap has gone as high as 94%, but it's averaging around 14% and seems to clean itself out okay. I've got 2GB of swap space allocated and right now I'm using about 428MB, or roughly 21.5%.
