my mac since one week is VERY SLOW. The MB free are 350 now. After cleaning they become 1000 but after few minutes they fall down to 2/300 AGAIN.

It's impossible now to work with.

Thank you for helping!

What is interesting is the relative size (in fractions of a pie) of these colored areas. The chart from the article shows a quarter of a pie of green, a good amount. 

 

We worry when the green becomes an insignificant sliver, say less than 1/8 pie.

 

Page out is a number (not a graph) just to the left of the pie. It is also described in the text of the article. It tells you how much the Hard Drive is being used to give the appearance of "infinite" memory.
