	Iam using a 8 Mb diskless machine with swap over nfs, when Iam using a 
applications that receices a lot of packets send by the server at a very high 
rate the machine hangs consistently, but when I increase the values of low 
water mark and  high water mark for the waking up of the pager daemon then the 
application runs for the most of the times, moreover  when I run the same 
application on a machine with disk ie. the swap is on the hard disk, the 
machine never hangs. Any idea what could be the reason for this hangs, is it 
because of some deadlock, what are the extra resources used by the kernel when 
the swap is over nfs.
