    Is vSwap allocated in RAM or Disk?

    I see vSwap has replaced Burst RAM in OpenVZ products with most providers. So this vSwap is allocated in Physical Memory or Disk Storage by the VPS providers?

    Why swapping when there is free memory?

    There is swapping happening on my VPS when there is still free memory available. I always thought swapping does happen when the physical memory cannot accommodate the need. Appreciate your help to understand this. free -h total used free shared buffers...
