          Relation between SWAP and RAM
          http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-swap-space.html

          RAM is used to save data. CPU time is used to process data.

          There is no relationship between CPU and memory usage. A process can occupy all CPUs of a system but use only a minimal amount of memory. Also, a process can allocate all memory available on a system but only use minimal CPU time. So there is no relation between both.
