Howdy memcache list, 
I'm administering some memcache servers, they are 4gb dual opteron hp
blades, they act only as memcached on these gentoo servers (3 istances
of 1150 mb each).
What I'm wondering is, do I really need swap partition?  

I'd also to know:

I tear down one istance for some reason, for some other reason I've no
more 1150 mb of phisical memory free while I'm going to rise it up
again, will memached swap in this scenario?
