swapping weirdness


I have this machine here with 4G of RAM and running NetBSD-5 stable
branch. I leave it alone for one night and return to see the
situation: lots of free mem, and used swap [see also attached
xosview shot]. Now I'm aware of the fact that during the night
there's /etc/security running and scanning the filesystem etc. But
shouldn't the following prevent the filesystem from using all too
much memory?

vm.anonmin = 10
vm.filemin = 10
vm.execmin = 5
vm.anonmax = 80
vm.filemax = 50
vm.execmax = 30

Are there tools to determine which processes are sleeping in the

Tia & regards,
