For most real-time client serving applications using any swap space to 
service any part of those requests is counter productive.

It only makes sense if you are using the swap as some form of data 
backing store, but then you have to ask why not just leave it in a file 
anyway.  The most natural backing store.

First have you found the file ?  Its usualy in the current working 
directory of the JVM.

find / -name "hs_err_pid11598.log" 2>/dev/null
