you are guessing based on what evidence/evidences?

If you run

  free -m



what does swap show?

If you are running


then sort by memory, is memory really that much needed by bloated apps?

Push X to see by what top does sort, push Shift+M to sort by memory.

If you run

  df -ht tmpfs

is there enough tmpfs available?

If tmpfs should be full

  ls $(df -t tmpfs | awk '{ print $6}' | grep -v Mounted)

shows what is in tmpfs.
