After the last macOS 11.4 update swap memory usage seems to have dramatically declined but the memory pressure went up significantly.
I was using 10-20GB swap on my previous INTEL with 32GB RAM and then maybe 10-15GB swap on my M1 with 16GB RAM, but after the 11.4 update that seems to have dropped to 5GB or less. But now my memory pressure is now in the “yellow” warning zone, with no noticeable change in performance or responsiveness.
Anyone else notice this change?
I’m still running tests to stress this. So far so good. Almost like magic.
