Add swap usage as a monitoring metric

Add swap usage as a monitoring metric (for linux based servers). Either number of swap pages in use, or perhaps swap rate.

    Also, custom metrics which can be specified by terminal commands..

    We're in the middle of a major monitoring redesign, and as a starting place for swap metrics we are planning to add a memory plot that splits out swap and rss usage.

    To Ben Y:

    We also have custom metrics support on our longer-term radar and in the near term will be releasing a new, more Prometheus node_exporter compatible metrics agent.
