[SOLVED] Expand swap memory

I have this 98% swap situation and I don't know if I should expand it or execute any command to empty it. Can you help me?

this looks like unused Data in the memory.
If data will not be used for a long time, the kernel decides to move it in the swap.
So this is not a problem.
Normally this data comes from Databases or ZFS.
