Re: High vm scan rate and dropped keystrokes thru X?

It has been a very long time since I had to look at UVM stuff, but luckily past me post to Well done past me.

Copying from that post, I was using
  vm.anonmin = 10
  vm.filemin = 5
  vm.execmin = 5
  vm.anonmax = 90
  vm.filemax = 10
  vm.execmax = 30

Sounds normal enough.

  procs    memory      page                       disks   faults      cpu
  r b      avm    fre  flt  re  pi   po   fr   sr w0 w1   in   sy  cs us sy id

That's 12GB of RAM in use and 86MB of RAM free. Sounds pretty awful to me.

What does top or vmstat -s say about pages active/inactive and anonymous/cachdd file/cached executable pages. This might give you a hint about where all your memory has gone and what it is being used for.
