Description akonstam 2001-05-16 10:54:10 EDT
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
-s
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
eroneous?

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run free or free -t
2.
3.
	

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
seawolf.

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 09:28:25 EDT
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 09:30:23 EDT
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.
