http://stackoverflow.com – I use the following script (from this blog http://northernmost.org/blog/find-out-what-is-using-your-swap) to know for each process how much swap it is using #!/bin/bash # Get current swap usage for all running processes # Erik Ljungstrom 27/05/2011 SUM=0 OVERALL=0 for DIR in `find /proc/ -maxdepth 1 -type d | egrep "^/proc/[0-9]"` ; do PID=`echo $DIR | cut -d / -f 3` PROGNAME=`ps -p $PID -o comm --no-headers` for SWAP in `grep Swap $DIR/smaps 2>/dev/null| awk '{ print $2 }'` do let SUM=$SUM+$SWAP done echo "PID=$PID - Swap used: $SUM - ($PROGNAME )" let OVERALL=$OVERALL+$SUM SUM=0 done ec (HowTos)
