Subject Re: Swap Space for Caches

Hi Kevin,

This is not a brand new discussion:
http://apache-ignite-developers.2346864.n4.nabble.com/Global-off-heap-memory-limit-td11267.html

Basically, global limit could be useful, but we decided not to do that
because 2.0 will completely change the configuration anyway.
