	Depends on your OS.  You should be able to see difference between the  
vm size and the resident size in things like top pretty easily.

	-k will try to lock memcached's allocated memory.  That may not work,  
though.  The easiest way to avoid swapping is to not have swap.  For  
example, why put a disk in a dedicated memcached machine at all?
