    Anybody can explain me what is "Swap", in "service status"?
    Is better when it is high or low? (e.g. is better 1% or 0.555%)?

    Thanks

    Swap is kind of like additional RAM. It's a portion of the hard drive used for frequently accessed data, or "swapping". The lower the better, but even 1% is very low. If it gets high, like near 100%, too much, it could mean the server is overloaded.
