You are quite right of course. You may wish to tune things so that you
are not swapping to the same disk that your apps are hammering on for
Still memory is cheap these days so much swapping is a bad thing most of
the time that can usually be cured by throwing more ram in the box. I do
tend to let virtual machines swap a bit since the underlying host will
be using any free ram it has left to cache Disk I/O anyway.
