I'm learning to manage a VPS LAMP server. I noticed that whenever Apache consumes more RAM than is allotted, the server disk I/O rate jumps from a negligible value to a big value like 3k/hour.
Why is this so? What exactly is happening?
I would have to guess that this is because you have a swapfile/partition setup and the system is swapping.
