comment Does it matter about the amount of the swap area in Linux system
Which would be - what? A few megs of stuff from init? Some cached memory that will be tossed as soon as something actually needs the ram? If your machine NEEDS to swap memory to function, its overloaded and needs to be scaled up anyways.

If you have 128Gb of ram, and you start swapping - that system is probably way out of control and dead anyways. I, personally, would probably run that server without swap at all. The OOMKiller should take care of any runaway process before running out of memory causes a crash - and the crash is faster to fix anyways.

It looks like cpu is spiking during those gaps. I would find out what process is causing that

Very interesting. Looks like something is blocking the disk - seek time, maybe? Might be writing logs or something elsewhere on disk at those specific times. I'd check for cron jobs and file access during those gaps. Something else is going on thats blocking your transfer speed.

Weird. Can you graph disk IO as well? See if something goes crazy during those gaps? Try to correlate that graph with something else - CPU spikes, disk, memory consumption... those gaps are WAY too regular for most failures I see.
