(I came into this discussion late, so please let me know if this has
been covered!)

It's unlikely that letting mod_perl go into swap space is going to
help (most likely, things will slow down even more).   It is a little
surprising that nothing is being moved into swap if your free RAM is
so small, unless most of that is bufferspace.  What does 'free' show?
(Even better, what does 'cat /proc/meminfo' show?)

The problem is probably elsewhere and adding more memory (RAM or otherwise)
isn't likely to help.   512MB should be more than enough - RT on one of
my systems (with 512MB) takes up quite a bit less that what you're seeing
(typically a few dozen MB, except for buffers).

Good luck!
