I have a server 11.10 installed and it seems like no matter how hard my server is working it only uses the first 5GB of RAM out of 16 but is still using some swap space.

All the memory shows up, it just doesn't get use

32-bit or 64bit? Maybe what your running on the server is mostly CPU intensive.

As Alvar has asked, how much swap is being used?
