Hi @suba_muthuram ,


Here are a couple of KBs I found regarding 100% utilization of swap memory. Swap memory in general has a small allocation of memory.


Hope this helps!

Hi Golf,


I have read this KBs already, but in the PA-850 we already have nearly 2GB swap memory.

I would contact support to check it out as they can get into a deeper dive than we can. Also check the version of the OS you are running and see if there are any bugs fixed in newer releases.
