swap gets full and fuller

Hello,
I have one machine thatused to crash from time to time,
one of the messages is always that there was no more swap available.
When I now log into the machine, I can see that 80% of the swap are already full,
yesterday it was at 50%. I expect the crash some time today.

How can i find out what is causing this?
The only task this machine does is to act as a mysql slave, there are 2 other servers that also only relicate and
one of them is also crashing, but not that often.

thx

Add more memory?

Use top or ps aux to see what's hogging the memory.

You might even spot a memory leak.

How much memory is installed and how large is swap?
