That sounds more like it is swapping now when before it was not.  Is
there now a process running that is consuming more memory?  What does
'cat /proc/meminfo' say about memory usage?  (Although I have gotten
lazy and rely much upon 'htop' to show me the usage.)  What does
'vmstat' say in the 'si' and 'so' columns?
