Of course kswapd was using 100% CPU, consequently a simple cp and `sleep 1`
together would take 2 seconds to complete, which is why the vmstat file
timestamps aren't consecutive.

You could try perf sampling to see where kswapd spends the cpu:

perf record -a -g
(let it run for e.g. a minute, then ctrl^c
perf report -g

Should I disable THP and monitor for its occurrence?
