How much memory is on the machine? And when you do the "free" command,
what do you get?

Here it is on one of our Interchange servers:

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       4138260    3866636     271624          0     153168    1415504
-/+ buffers/cache:    2297964    1840296
Swap:      5156856         72    5156784

You can see that there is plenty of memory, and that swap is not used
at all to speak of.

If you only have a small amount of memory, and swap is being used,
that would be the most common explanation.
