So you have to create a 1 gigabyte swap partition because, you are
running 10 processes for a year, each of which, even for only 1 second
at some random time during the year, might grow to 100 MB! That is
rediculous! I do think this is a problem. You should only need 100 MB
swap, unless you really do need to use the memory at the same time!
The memory behavior you're describing would be odd, to say the least.
