My 128K RH7.0 box seems to be running out of RAM see thread "Cannot kill process - please help!" at
My top -M listing shows nothing much is running -- 7 or 8 httpd processes show as using 4% memory each, sshd is in there, pretty much all other ports are switched off and I'm not running anything else. Yet 'top' and 'free' both show around 4Nb free RAM.
I understand that Linux grabs large chunks of available RAM for swapping -- so how do I work out how much RAM I've *really* got? The server vendor is telling us that 128Mb may be insufficient for IBM JDK 1.3 ?? Unless I can see how much is really free I can't tell if this makes sense.
Any help would be much appreciated - thanks.
