Looking for Testers: New Swap Extender

Jesse Smith has been working on a program that monitors how much swap space is available on a PC-BSD system. As existing swap space is used up, Swap Extender creates a larger swap file, effectively growing the amount of swap available to the operating system. As swap usage decreases, Swap Extender shrinks the swap file.

Instructions for downloading and installing Swap Extender and where to send any bug reports or suggestions can be found on this forum thread.
