From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i586)

Description of problem:
We have a machine that has 4 - 2Gig swap areas. cat /proc/swaps and swapon
confirm they exist. The free program returns the information that htere is
4Gig of swap area total.  top returns the same eroneous value. Or is it

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run free or free -t

Actual Results:  [akonstam@SnowWhite /proc]$ free -t
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       4020832     162784    3858048      86128      61380      31648
-/+ buffers/cache:      69756    3951076
Swap:      4192152          0    4192152
Total:     8212984     162784    8050200

Expected Results:  Swap  8384304              0     8384304

Additional info:

I think from a note on the seawolf list the same behavior exists in

I am not sure where we are on this bug. Has it been reproduced? Has its origin
been found?
It has been 3 months and I just got a notification of the posting of the bug but
no comments were included in ther mail message or in the bug report on bugzilla.

Comment 2 akonstam 2002-06-21 13:28:25 UTC
I was the one that posted this bugzilla request. I keep getting the request
copied back to me without any additional comments. Why is this?

Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2002-06-24 13:30:23 UTC
You get a mail any time a field in the bugreport changes, such as the recent
owner change. I just recently got all the procps bugs, and i haven't had time to
look at this one yet.
