comment On Centos 6.3, why do several swap measuring methods return different results?
Even if that's the case, there's still nearly 1 Gb of swap usage unaccounted for.

@harrymc - I can't say that it does really - the accepted answer appears to be irrelevant to my case (since I used VmSwap from /proc/*/status), and then goes on to give a google search which is just more people asking the same question, but not getting a definite answer.

Maybe we should, but setting swappiness to 0 is simpler and probably less risky to try out on a production system. That doesn't answer my question though :)

swappiness is set to 60 at the moment, and I agree that reducing it might help, but my question is about how to find out what is using the swap space that isn't accounted for by the values in /proc/*/status VmSwap.
