General :: High Memory Utilization By System?

Nov 11, 2009

I have a server running samba process and there are about 70 samba users connected at a time. The system has 4Gb of memory and it seems each samba process is utilizing only 3352Kb of memory.
When I run the command
pmap -d (pid of samba)

It gives as:
b7ffa000 4 rw-s- 0000000000000000 0fd:00003 messages.tdb
bfe46000 1768 rw--- 00000000bfe46000 000:00000 [ stack ]
ffffe000 4 r-x-- 0000000000000000 000:00000 [ anon ]
mapped: 33384K writeable/private: 3352K shared: 20504K

But when I run the top command, it results as below:
Tasks: 163 total, 1 running, 162 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 0.9% us, 4.9% sy, 0.0% ni, 93.3% id, 0.8% wa, 0.2% hi, 0.0% si
Mem: 3895444k total, 3163192k used, 732252k free, 352344k buffers
Swap: 2097144k total, 208k used, 2096936k free, 2487636k cached

Why could the system be utilizing such high memory? By the way, the server is not running other processes. The samba version running in it is 3.0.33-0.17.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 LTS Memory And CPU Utilization Spikes?

Oct 21, 2010

I have a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and about 40 ThinClients running LSTP in a school's computer lab. Everytime the users start to use applications, the server's memory utilization increases, while the swap memory is quite free. I have 12GB of memory on that server.

Ubuntu :: Memory Leak / Some Process Eating All Memory

Jan 29, 2011

I have had a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 and installed some software after that.Since third some, some process is eating half of my memory.I have checked processes running in system manager but everything is normal.Maximum is consumed by compiz which is about 26 mb, seems very normal.I did restarted my computer several times, and in the start for 5 mins, its fine after that again my cpu fans runs at very fast speed and my one cpu is used up 95 % (I have dual core).Please help me out, this invisible thing is driving me crazy.I am attaching my htop screen shot (sorted by cpu %), now the cpu is not used by completely but fan is still struggling hard and fast.

Fedora :: Way To Reduce Running Time / Memory Requirement Of Update Process?

Aug 14, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire netbook with 1GB RAM and 1.6 GHz dual-core 32-bit x86 chips. The KPackageKit / yum / rpm chain is running too slow for me. In addition to the time required to download any new packages or updates, it seems to require at least one full minute of processing time to install each package, update, or bug fix, no matter how small. Another full minute is consumed for each package in "cleaning up."Running yum from the command line takes nearly the same amount of time.During this time, I cannot run any other applications without severe thrashing. It seems that a full gigabyte of memory is in use with some 100M swapped out to disk.

Is there any way to reduce the running time and memory requirement of the update process?While not updating or installing software, I do not normally run out of memory (i.e. begin thrashing) until I have about a dozen browser tabs open, or the like.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unable To Push RHEL 6.0 Past 95% Utilization

Apr 22, 2011

- I am running with Oracle UEL 6.0 (2.6.32-100.28.5.el6) because stock RHEL 6.0 (2.6.32-71.el6 ) has issues with the async I/O driver.

- The test is a high throughput performance benchmark running on Oracle 11gR1

- I am pumping a lot of disk I/O through the system while running with enough users to max out the 8 CPUs, which get to 99+% utilization with RHEL 5.3

- The server is a 4-socket Nehalem EX X7560. Right now, only 2 cores per socket are enabled.

- There are GBs of memory left over. The disk response time of the SSD arrays is around 1ms and the arrays are capable of 4-5 times more IOPS. Same with networking, etc. The testbed is capable of maxing out 32 CPUs with RHEL 5.3 I cannot push the RHEL 6.0 CPU utilization past 95-96%. The same test on all flavors of RHEL from 4.4 to 5.3 can totally saturate the CPUs. It feels like the system is intentionally holding back some CPU cycles.

Software :: How To Get Size Of Memory Used By Each Process?

Jul 25, 2009

I need to know, what process for what purpose is using memory in my machine. ps utility with various options seems to give not exactly what i want, i.e. if i sum all the values like RSS, VSZ or some other values related to memory usage, the sum is not equal (even approximately) to what i get using free|grep "buffers/cache".
How can i get this information? Even better, i would like to see contribution of every process, ramdisk, etc. to memory usage.

General :: Force A Process To Run In Virtual Memory?

Dec 9, 2010

I am running a series of tests for an implementation of a remote pager that sends page faults to other computers in a network. Long story short, I was wondering if there is an easy way to force a process to use virtual memory as oppose to physical RAM so that I can better measure the performance of my implementation against how the system would perform while swapping to the hard drive.

General :: Calculating Process Memory Usage?

May 13, 2010

What originally seemed like an easy thing to calculate has given me a big headache. Perhaps someone can help me with my issue. I am trying to find, in particular, how much memory certain application processes are taking. The process always is the same name, main_server, but with an argument to tell it what to do when running as a daemon.

When running the following command against all "main_server" processes, it produces a result in megabytes based on the output of the rss field in 'ps'.

for ea in
`ps -e -orss=,args= |
sort -b -k1,1n |
grep main_server |
grep -v "grep main_server" |


Currently I am left scratching my head. For capacity planning purposes, it would be nice to know how many more 'main_server' processes could run on the system without causing it to swap. Knowing the buffer and cache usage will go down as running processes demand more memory, I prefer to look at the free memory excluding cache and buffers. However, since 'ps' is reporting the processes are using more memory than free reports is in use without those things, I have no way to know how many more processes the system can support. I played around with different fields in 'ps', such as vsize, size, etc, but with no luck in matching up any numbers.
