Metric ‘swap utilisation(%)’ on Grid Control node too high.

The metric 'swap utilisation (%)' on the node where Grid Control resides, shows permanently a very hig value. Red Hat Linux, 64-bits, 32GB RAM, 4GB swap. Adding 4GB to the swap-file solved the problem.

Grid Control: 10.2.0.5. Discoverer: 10.1.2.x
In Grid Control, after upgrade to 10.2.0.5, a Discoverer target shows down in the list, while it’s functioning quite well.

It seemed an old bug (Grid Ctrl 10.1.04) is still not […]
