Swapping question

vdba73vdba73 EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner
Hi,
This is my first post on the site and I ma new to mysql world , so please forgive me if some thing sounds stupid.

We have a 16G machine and the memeory caches are using only around 4G. My question is When we run Analyze I start to see the swap space keeps on going up and in order to avoid Server Crash , we have to kill the Analyze process. Can someone please explain why this is happening. I am also listing all important stats (I think), which may give you some insite. The stats are not taken during Analyze , but are taken during regular processing

FYI : I have a smaller machine with 8G RAM and same OS and Linux version which runs fine.
