After one or two hours of running my red hat linux 9 machine the Ram memory 
is fully ocupied, by programs and disk cache.
Then the system starts swaping and MailScanner reduces performance 

Our systen has:
Mailscanner 4.45.4
Sendmail 8.12.8
Clamav 0.84

Here is the capture for 'free' command

Any idea?
Thank you very much
