I get a panic from a recent system.  It seems to be memory usage
related and from the following I am wondering if I don't have enough
swap.

(gdb) target kcore netbsd.0.core
panic: pagedaemon: clean anon page without backing store?
#0  0xf021568a in uvm_pageout () at ../../../../uvm/uvm_pdaemon.c:309
309     }
(gdb) bt

Here's a swapctl -lk

Device      1K-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity  Priority
/dev/sd0b      262144        4   262140     0%    0

Total          524288        8   524280     0%

This is for a system with 250 users who mostly maintain mailboxes with
some shell access and a bunch of web pages.
