No, not with the amount of nodes and users you have.

Most likely the memory you have allocated to postgres and apache exceed the 
amount of RAM you actually have available.  Your server should never have to 
go into swap.  

Unfortunately, the default configurations aren't always well adapted to busy 
servers, especially with limited RAM.  But without your apache.conf, and 
postgresql.conf, and without knowing if your server is doing anything else, 
it's hard to formulate specific recommendations.

The Cache_Lite code in wifidog never made it out of experimental (and is 
unlikely to make it).
