You've shown the system has used swap but not that it is swapping.
Having swap in use is fine - there is likely plenty of code and whatnot
that is not being used so it dumped it out to swap. However if you are
actively moving data to/from swap that is bad. Very bad. Especially on
linux.

To tell if you are swapping you need to watch the output of say, vmstat
1 and look at the si and so columns.

Linux is very swap happy and likes to swap things for fun and profit.
