How to see total memory usage..

Dear All,

I have 8 Gb main memory and 9 GB (4+5) memory in swap, 17 Gb in total. Now the problem is when I run "swapinfo -tam", it shows only memory usage by swap space but it doesn't include main memory.
while in other servers it shows main memory also.
now tell what is the reason and how can I check total memory usage in that server.

Regards,
Arun Jain

Re: How to see total memory usage..

If you're saying that swapinfo only shows device, Filesystem, reserve and total lines it sounds like this server doesn't have swapmem_on set.

Hi Don Morris,

yes, you are right, "swapmem_on" parameter is not set. But for that I have to restart the server which I can't do.

Re: How to see total memory usage..

Hi yogeeraj,

this one also cant solve the problem as it gives absolute data, but I want the same data in percentage.
