VM (?) issue still



Upgrading to kernel kernel 2.4.1-0.1.14 seems to have fixed the most serious
slowdown issues, but I'm still finding the system isn't as responsive as
before (this is an IDE box) when it was running plain RH7, especially during
disk access. It is also using a good chunk of swap despite a light load...
didn't do this earlier.

# free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        158956     143640      15316          0        532      25624
-/+ buffers/cache:     117484      41472
Swap:       272120      46744     225376

# vmstat

Restarting the various daemons does free up swap space, but... that's
kludgy.

Any hints & tips on how to diagnose the issue?
