    I have 27" iMac with 16 GB RAM

    uptime: ~7 days

    Activity Monitor reports:

    Page ins 39GB
    Page outs 167MB
    Swap used 4.8MB

    iStat Pro reports: 10.2 million page ins, ~43,000 page outs

    I figured that with 16 GB I'd rarely see a page out. I'd guess the most "memory intensive" thing I've done in the past week is lots of Firefox tabs or maybe like ~30 QuickTime videos open at once.

    Anyway, what you think? I guess I always need something to worry about :eek:

    You're doing pageouts on 16GB RAM? :eek:
    I was going to suggest upgrading your memory.
