I still don't understand why you'd turn PFRATL on (set it above zero)
instead of using a combination of swpoutpgcount and others to
encourage swapping of entire processes.
Because some active processes grab memory for short needs and
then don't give it back. It's not appropriate to swap them out,
but you may not be able to let them hog RAM you haven't got.
