"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? cu lukas
