The Question is:
what is the SWAPPER process function and is it bad if it is running at 100%?
The Answer is :
The swapper process is associated with process swapping and
process working set trimming, and continous activity of the
swapper is typically considered undesirable.
After applying the mandatory ECO kits for OpenVMS, and after
ensuring that the system has sufficient physical memory for
the current activity (that there is not a process or memory
resource constraint), and after AUTOGEN has been run to reset
parameters to current requirements, please contact the customer
support center directly -- expect to be asked both for the
current system activity and environment, and for details of
the process quotas and system parameters.
