 	Thanks. Hmmm. I can see it's a bit tricky. There's a web page that 
shows an indicator light - ideally I want it to turn red if the 
application is starting to consume swap. But the indicator light takes an 
instaneous look at the state of swap - so it looks like I need to observe 
over a longer period.
