Fedora :: /dev/shm - 224 Mbyte Ramdisk That Is Consuming 224 Mbytes Of System Memory Whether Or Not Use It

Dec 5, 2009

I just noticed this in my "df" output:


There's an entry in /etc/fstab which mounts this automatically. If I interpret that correctly, that's a 224 mbyte ramdisk that is consuming 224 mbytes of system memory whether or not I use it. Is that correct? If so, will anything break if I unmount it and delete it from /etc/fstab? Do programs typically depend on it? I'd like to reclaim the system memory (low DRAM machine) for other uses.

Server :: Squid Excessive Memory Consuming On Fedora 12?

Feb 7, 2011

There is squid 3.1.8 on a Fedora 12 server with 2 GB of RAM. It is used for sharing the Internet for approximatively 80 PC's. The problem is that it is really a memory hog, when enabling delay pools. I am using the following configuration for the memory pools:


delay_pools 1
delay_class 1 2
delay_access 1 allow drumuri


There are moments when the squid process uses approximatively all the RAM and goes into swapping. After that I restart it, it goes well for a while and again eats up all the memory. On the Internet it says that Squid uses a lot of memory, but should it use 2 GB of memory, even if all 80 people are online at the same time?

Ubuntu :: Dbus - Daemon Consuming 50% Memory

May 4, 2010

I've just upgraded to 10.04. I love it. I've been running dark themes for a long time and this upgrade merged seamlessly with my setup.There is a nasty problem that I've noticed on only my desktop box (laptop is fine, also upgraded to 10.04). The dbus-daemon is hogging approximately 50% of my cpu cycles. Is there a way to limit this? I'm watching this via the System Monitor and the % CPU. My laptop registers its dbus-daemon % CPU as 0.

Ubuntu :: RAM-consuming Instances Not Shown In System Monitor?

Jul 9, 2011

I have 3.5GB of usable RAM as reported by System Monitor. Now after a couple of hours, System Monitor shows that around 52% of my RAM is being consumed. Switching to Processes (I have All Processes selected), I see firefox-bin consuming around 200-250MB of RAM while Xorg consumes around 100-140MB. The rest adds up to another 200MB consumed.

So it doesn't add up. Yeah, I can grab another RAM block and be done with it (giving a projected total usable RAM of 7.0GB, I have another slot). I just want to know where the rest of the consumed RAM is.

Debian :: Qemu - Windows 7 From Partition - Error ""Ramdisk Device Creation Failed Due To Insufficient Memory"

Sep 8, 2011

I'd like to learn it. So I installed lenny & grub2, after that win7, reconfigured grub2, upgraded to squeeze. All is fine, but I cant start working in Debian as I can work only in Windows. So I decided to use qemu to emulate win7 booting. I have sda1, sda2 for squeeze; sda3 and sda4 for win7. If I try "qemu /dev/sda3" I get disk read error. If I try "qemu /dev/sda" I have grub 2 boot screen and when continue booting win7 I get "Ramdisk device creation failed due to insufficient memory" (as screen on [UR:]). I tried to use m -1024 parameter and got screen with "Windows load files" and reboot to grub2 screen/

Debian Configuration :: Can't Umount Ramdisk After Loading New Root File System

Feb 1, 2010

I have built a kernel with a ramdisk(ramdisk.image.gz) included. Also in the kernel command line I specified root=/dev/ram0. I am trying to use this ramdisk to load a loopback file as the root filesystem off a fat partition. This is /sbin/init from the ramdisk.

mount -n -t msdos /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt
losetup /dev/loop0 /mnt/linux/linuxdsk.img
mount -t ext2 /dev/loop0 /mnt2


The problem is both umount and blockdev report "device is busy". I want to free up this RAM any suggestions?

Fedora Hardware :: Cannot Use All Of System Memory?

Jun 6, 2010

I just installed Fedora 13 onto a "new" (to me) box, and everything seems mostly fine, except that I only seem to be able to use about 900.2 MiB of 991.4 MiB of RAM memory, according to System Monitor. I haven't set up a swap partition yet, so the problem became very, very, very obvious. When I get to about 890 MiB usage, everything goes very quickly downhill, locking up, etc. The peak I saw was 900.2 MiB. What's going on? Does this have anything to do with the system being 64-bit? Might the memory be bad?

Fedora :: Root File System Out Of Memory?

May 22, 2011

I have worked in linux for a long time but never managed the system until I got my own server, which is running Fedora 14. I have a 3 TB Drive and apparently can only handle 2 TB. At least the Disk Analyzer is telling me that 2TB is 100% max capacity. Also viewing disk analyzer, I am only using 50GB of my 2TB but I am out of memory in the Root file system. If I run df -h, I get he following:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

Fedora Installation :: F15 Wrongly Reporting Memory As 3.2 GB In 4 GB System / Fix It?

Jul 18, 2011

I had Fedora 13 64 bit before which was correctly reporting memory as 4GB. After I wiped off Fedora 13 and did a fresh install of Fedora 15 32 bit, the memory is reported as 3.2 GB in the system Info and also in free -mt command code...

Where is 600MB memory gone missing? I checked the BIOS setting and it correctly says total memory is 4GB.

The hardware is exactly same and I did not change anything.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Version 10 Won't Boot After Installing 4Gb Of System Memory

May 9, 2009

I have been using for over a year now, my 64-bit computer first with Fedora 8 and now with Fedora 10 with 2Gb of RAM just fine. Today I purchased an extra 2Gb for the system and upon installation from the GRUB screen Fedora 10 simply won't boot. It does boot with 3Gb, and it doesn't matter which stick I use for the 3Gb configuration, or what slot do I put the sticks into the motherboard, however if I place the four sticks, F10 simply won't boot. Should I pass a command line argument tot he kernel? If so, which?

i have a RAM of 1 Gb & swap of 1Gb with fedora11 installed, initially in RAM programme memory uses around 300 Mb & cache uses 600-700 Mb , but after some time it starts using swap memory though my programme memory is still around 300 mb, it keeps on increasing swap memory as a result my system keeps on slowing down & finally when swap memory is 100% system almost stops responding but programme memory is still around 300mb.

Fedora Installation :: F12 Install: Ramdisk: Incomplete Write?

Nov 18, 2009

So after deciding to upgrade the existing fedora install on my laptop from 11 to 12, I decided to use the preupgrade method. After grappling with the boot space issue by clearing out an old kernel that was deemed safe to remove by the python script on the preconfig wiki page and then using tune2fs, I left the computer to do it's thing, periodically checking back on it. I come back to my computer, and after an apparent restart I see this message spat out at me:

ramdisk: incomplete write (3537 ! 5123)
write error

kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : unable to mount root fs on unknown block (0,0)
I need this laptop up and running for tomorrow and I would appreciate any help given. I have a Fedora 11 live CD running on the laptop and there seems to be an extra 210 filesystem present with the folders efi, grub, lost+found in there, as well as some config files, elf-memtest86+-400, what seems to be .img file amongst other things. If necessary, I can provide a screenshot.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cannot Write To Ramdisk - No Space Left On Device?

Jul 7, 2011

I am trying to write to a Ramdisk because I suffer from terrible IO speeds on my VPS. It uses openVZ and I run a Centos 5 distro.

So i created my ramdisk with '/bin/mount -t tmpfs -o size=1G,nr_inodes=10k,mode=0775,noatime,nodiratime tmpfs /tmp'

but whenever I try and copy files to it, it just spams me with 'no space left on device even though there is!

Here is the output of df:

Ubuntu Installation :: Mythbuntu System Hangs After Regular System Update: "out Of Memory" Errors

Aug 4, 2010

I have Mythbuntu 10.04 installed on an exclusive HTPC and working great... until tonight. After letting the system update some packages (161 packages if I remember right), I suddenly have an issue where the graphical system won't start. After researching I found three error messages that might be causing that.

1. At the start of splash screen I see "UUID=xxxxxxxCD7 not ready yet or not present" I checked in /etc/fstab and found that this is the swap partition. I don't remember seeing this before so this could be the culprit.

2. I'm not at the computer in question right now but I saw a Plymouth error about "mountall" and then the message "plymouth command failed". Not sure if this could be the main error.

3. after a while (usually ca. 1-2 min) I receive thousands of errors of the kind "out of memory"... "kill process XXXX" (process vary wildly e.g. dbus-daemon, mysql, etc)... "process killed"..."respawning"

After error 3, I'm not able to switch to graphical console (ctrl-alt-F7). If I was in the graphical console at this moment, I simply can't switch to the CLI console. I'm always afraid of updating my system since I've seen lots of things breaking afterwards (usually the proprietary graphic drivers) but this is really strange.
