I had 2 Gigs of Ram in my backend and I was starting to swap to disk
when I used mythweb. I added 2 more gigs and now mythweb doesn't cause
me to swap out to disk. Using swap memory is much slower than actual
memory. The problem is compounded if you're running mysql-server,
Apache, mythbackend and the OS all on 1 physical hard drive.

Swap is slow - I would avoid using it if you can.
