Yes on the smaller ones, but not on the problem one, I've tried turning
as much off with it as possible, all to no avail, once S.A is on bang, the 
queue starts to blow out. I admit im no S.A guru, extremely far from it, 
but the other boxes handle it well, but they dont do as much work as that 
one, and no it does swap, theres ample memory and its fast scsi raid like 
the others, I could understand it if the load blew out but it barely peaks 
much higher than normal.
