We could always disable swap but this would normally be a bad idea unless you have an incredible amount of RAM and a workload that will never exceed it. However, for live/containerized and high performance environments it could be desirable.
Another middle ground may be to set swappiness to a lower number.
You may also want to clear your kernel's cache, which could be eating up RAM unnecessarily by c........
This made me nervous but it's clearly a cronjob based on the messages log that happens every Sunday at about 4:22.
I actually can't find any evidence of it in cron.d cron.daily but it is there somewhere obviously.
What I don't get is why doesn't this cronjob do a datacheck like Ubuntu's cronscript does? When you unnecessarily rebuild the array you lose your redundancy during that point which makes your data extremely vulnerable.
*Update I did a grep of &q........
I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 but anyone using older kernels will find this may apply to them. My Intel graphics are very slow with the default Xorg settings but by using "EXA" acceleration, scrolling down windows of text becomes pretty snappy.
Just edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
