"free" gives me the following outout on my workstation:
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 1550840 1308096 242744 0 94244 859148
-/+ buffers/cache: 354704 1196136
Swap: 522104 23868 498236
About 84% memory is used. But about 900MB are used for caching and
buffering, so in fact there are only about 346MB in "real use".
If your memory is 99% without buffers and cache, then there is
something wrong (but I don't know what).
Can you see a process that consumes that much memory when you are
calling "ps" or "top"?
What kind of kernel do you use?
