  An oft-recommended ratio is X memory:2.5 X swap, but this may be too
  low. Decide how much of your favorite program (plus IRIX) needs to
  be resident for good performance and how much doesn't, and make sure
  you have enough memory for the former and enough memory plus swap for
  the latter. Put "rmem" and "swp" in your ~/.grosview file, run
  'gr_osview' and run your favorite program to see what it needs.
