General :: Vmstat's Total Memory Statistic?

Sep 20, 2011

I am analyzing memory usage on a Linux system. When I run vmstat -s, I see the following:

waffleman@waffle-iron:~$ vmstat -s
3549184 K total memory
3206708 K used memory
1918012 K active memory
1037320 K inactive memory
342476 K free memory


I know the system has 4096 MB of RAM installed, but why does it show only 3466 MB? Can this be interpreted as total "available" memory? Perhaps the missing 630 MB is being used by the kernel and cannot paged out?

I also tried this on on an Embedded Linux system and saw a similar result. The DRAM chip has 128 MB, but only 124 MB shows up in vmstat.

General :: Noticed That The Total Used Memory A Lot Higher Than Sum Of RSS?

Jul 9, 2010

i got a RHEL 5.2 machine.and i noticed that the total used memory(as shown in "free" command) is 3GB higher thanthe sum of RSS size of all processes(collected using "ps aux").i know that its not suppose to be exact because RSS counts ultiple times shared memory (so actually it suppose to be higher than the used memory).the server runs apache which runs a pretty heavy php suspicion is that its memory leak?

General :: Find Total Memory Usage Of A Program?

Sep 22, 2010

I wrote a program that multiplies 2 matrices using multi-threads and another one using multiple processes and shared memory. Both in C.I need to find the total memory usage of these programs. I know of the top command, but when my matrices are relatively small they don't even show up on top because they complete so fast, how can I find the memory usage for these instances?Also, how can I find the total turnaround time of my programs?

Top only show the memory usage for individual processes. Apache often runs hundreds of processes, each of which may use only a small amount of memory, however the total memory consumed by all apache processes can be fairly large.Is there a way to see the total memory usage for all apache processes?

Server :: Calculate The Total Amount Of Memory Used By The System?

Jul 15, 2010

I want to calculate the total amount of memory used by the system, Someone please confirm if the below formula is correct.Quote:

((memUsed-mebBuffers-memCached)*100)/memUsed => totalMemoryUsed%
free -o
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 8167004 8115292 51712 0 87680 1444676
Swap: 8388584 3252996 5135588
((8115292-87680-1444676)*100/8115292) => 81%

As per the above calculation 81% of memory is used.Is this correct? and if so Am I running out of memory?what is the limit in % that I should maintain for a better performance?

General :: Different Results From Vmstat And Ps?

Jun 24, 2010

I am trying to determine CPU usage on a radio controller running Linux. We have a script that another member of my work wrote using vmstat which I could not get any consistant results from. So, in an effort to understand what was going on I wrote a script using ps. Sadley after running several tests using both scripts, they do no match up at all, vmstat always gives me a much higher value. However, if I simply run the commands at any given time they do match up, therefore I believe that there is an error in one of the scripts. I am very new to linux and so Here is the vmstat script:

declare -i total
declare -i tries

Programming :: Write A Script To Calculate The Total Amount Of Installed Memory?

Apr 4, 2011

I am trying to write a script to calculate the total amount of installed memory to use during an anaconda kickscript, so the swap file is created at 2 x the installed memory. I so far have the amount of installed RAM DIMMS but need a way to total them up and produce a varible I can use in the pre section of the install.


dmidecode -t 17 | grep Size | awk ' { print $2 }'

Note: on some servers there could be from 1 DIMM up to 16 DIMMS installed so the script needs to be able to handle this. I also can not use bc as it does not exist during the install stage. I am guessing I need a while loop to do this and use expr but do not know where to start for this logic.

Software :: Identify What Process Are Making Up The WA Statistic?

Dec 23, 2008

I have a WA% between 50-80%.

So I have a few questions.

1. Is that WA% only disk I/O or can it include network IO?
2. How do I identify which processes are making up that WA statistic?
3. Why does iostat report 100% utilization when the drive read/write speeds are under 1MB/s?

The reason I'm asking.

My Oracle stats are saying that the drives are running at about 5MB/s right now, the WA is 55%, and the iostat -m -x is reporting the drives running at 100% utilization with a read/write rate under 1MB/s. The read speed of the drive is 98MB/s (tested with hdparm -tT when I installed the drives)

I know I have a few queries using full tables scans which I'm working on but I'd think that 100% utilization should be running at the full 98MB/s.

I want to try to identify which process (most likely and oracle one) is using the 100% utilization/55% WA.

General :: Memory Corruption Detected In Low Memory

Aug 22, 2010

This is my first post in these forums. I'm still quite new to Linux (using Mint 9) so please bear with my not-very-articulate question(s)When I boot up and open up a tty terminal I get a message saying "Memory corruption detected in low memory." I've done an extensive google search about the issue and it seems not uncommon. I ran a memtest with no errors returned, so I'm sure that there's nothing really wrong with the memory; apparently it's a bug in the kernel that's causing this.
