What is VM swappiness?
The default value of vm. swappiness is 60 and represents the percentage of the free memory before activating swap. The lower the value, the less swapping is used and the more memory pages are kept in physical memory. The value of 60 is a compromise that works well for modern desktop systems.

How can I permanently change my swappiness value?

What is VFS cache pressure?
VFS cache pressure motivates code in the kernel to return memory being used for caching to the general pool of free memory. So high VFS cache pressure (ie, the vm. vfs_cache_pressure sysctl) causes the kernel to scavenge memory from virtual filesystem caches more agressively.
Should I reduce swappiness?
It is best practice to avoid swapping as much as you possibly can for productive application servers. It’s true that if you dedicate a server to a specialized workload that you know won’t benefit from system cache (like a database server) then reducing swappiness might make sense.
