I do not want to argue, but that lot is runing also now, and vmstat says, that swapped is less then 8MB (7556kB), and even during
longer period of vmstat runing are si and so columns still zero.
But maybe I am interpreting some numbers wrong :-(
I forgot mention that server is for only small group (15PCs) and with very low mail volume (about 200 to 300 mails per day), so load
is realy low.

With regards
