    2323||'''Steady'''|| normal operation; no additional swap space is needed, nor do we have more than is needed.  However, the program can go into the hungry or overfed states at the drop of a hat.||
    24 ||'''Hungry'''|| more swap space was recently allocated.  The program is willing to allocate even more if needed, but it will not consider dropping unneeded swap
    25 files.  After a certain timeout period, the program reverts to the steady tate.||
     24||'''Hungry'''|| more swap space was recently allocated.  The program is willing to allocate even more if needed, but it will not consider dropping unneeded swap files.  After a certain timeout period, the program reverts to the steady tate.||
    2625||'''Overfed'''|| significantly more virtual memory is available than is needed.  If this situation persists for a certain timeout period, a swapfile is deallocated and the program returns to the steady state.||
    2726||'''Diet'''|| a recent allocation attempt has run into resource limits, e.g. because the filesystem used for swap files was full.  No more swapspace can be allocated but excess files can be freed up very rapidly.  Afer timeout, reverts to steady.||
