Total percentage fluctuate but Memory and Swap staying the same

OS: B.11.31 U 9000/800

I used swapinfo -mat to collect the total, the Mem and the swap. The strange thing is I see the Mem usage was the same, the swap was at 0% (not a single MB got used) and yet the Total is fluctuating from 22% to 55%. Can anyone explain this to me?

swapinfo shows real swap and pseudo swap. The line memory shows pseudo swap. It is not available memory.

You need to use glance, sar or top to see available emmory.
