Large Swap File / Virtual Memory Usage

Running NetWare 6.5 SP6 and noticed this morning that the Virtual Memory Performance indicator in NRM Health Monitor is red.

Physical memory in use: 6,696,960
Memory swapped to disk: 297,938,944
Total bytes in virtual memory: 304,635,904

98% Swapped to Disk
2% Physical


Individual Cache Pool Statistics:

Type: Virtual Memory Classic File System
Pages Allocated: 59,936 884
Average Pages: 59,903 3,994
Cache Available State: Poor Desperate
Average Cache Available State: Pool Normal
Transfer Operation: N/A No Transfer
Pages To Transfer: 0
Control Thread: N/A 0x86E294A0


Any thoughts? I've never had to deal with a VM problem so I'm not sure where to begin.

How much memory is in this server?


2 GB (2 x 1 GB DIMM DDR Synchronous).

We've had this server in operation for a few years now and this is the first time I've noticed the Virtual Memory flagged red in the Health Monitor.

Can you get a copy of seg.nlm from here:
http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/14445.html

and create the segstats.txt then post it here, along with a config.txt

For the config.txt, on the console do "LOAD CONFIG /jumba1se", and wait
until the output file CONFIG.TXT gets created (on NW 6.x this message
only appears on the Logger screen). Please post that file here, with any
public IP addresses and RConsole passwords edited out. Thank you.
