When running gns3, my cpu is ok, but my swap memory pegs out at 100% after about 10 routers. Anyone know how to fix that?
Try adding the ghostios and the sparsemem options into your .net file. These should reduce the amount of RAM you need to run the routers. If they don't, please post back how much RAM you have in your machine. Thanks. Here's an example:
Thanks for the tip. I did find a web site that helped meincrease the swap memory, which helped for a while, but still locking up afterabout 9 or 10 routers. My ram is 2 gigs and I increased the swap memory to 2gigs also. Now, the swap memory is not maxed out but it still freezes up after9 or 10 routers.
I am looking at my .net file and see that sparsemem is true, butnot ghostios. I’ll turn that on and try it again. Thanks again.

I would increase your overall memory in your machine if you can. Bumping to 4GB if you can will dramatically increase your chances of being able to run that many. Also are you running Windows or Linux? I've never tried Windows but as I understand it Linux has much better performance overall. I'm currently running Ubuntu 9.10 x64 and it's awesome performance wise.
