top shows contradicting information
 
Currently I have problems with an application with a memory leak. Below I pasted the output of top which shows that the app is using 16.3g of virtual memory. According to the top manual, VIRT = SWAP + RES.
That would mean that this app has swapped out ~16g. But how is it possible that at the same time top shows that there's no swap space in use? Where are the 16g?

Code:

Mem:  4057180k total,  2447168k used,  1610012k free,  286172k buffers
Swap:  8385888k total,        0k used,  8385888k free,  1870824k cached

  PID USER      PR  NI  RES  VIRT  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  SWAP DATA COMMAND
 1227 ats      15  0  55m 16.3g 2500 S    0  1.4  0:52.85  16g  16g Cerebrus

Any (vendor?) details of what this app actually is slash does slash is located at?
