Swap error

We have an Ironmail 6.7.2 appliance.

Does this mean that paging/swapping is failing?

swap_pager_getswapspace(2): failed

swap_pager_getswapspace(2): failed

swap_pager_getswapspace(3): failed

swap_pager_getswapspace(5): failed

swap_pager_getswapspace(2): failed

swap_pager_getswapspace(4): failed

Should I schedule a reboot of the appliance?   Maybe a process has a memory leak?

Re: Swap error

Essentially you have a busy box, these errors are more common on gen3 devices running 6.7.2.  It can also happen on boxes running HF5 or less, where the superq process may coredump several times. Rebooting the device will certainly free up the swap, however if any of the previous issues are true then it will most likely come back.

You may want to consider calling into support to determine the most likely cause.
