increase free physical memory, decrease disk cache
I have a 384 Mb of memory size in my computer,
and here is the configuration according to my suse linux
Total physical memory : 384,862,592 bytes
Free physical memory : 5,054,464 bytes
Shared memory : 0 bytes
Disk buffers : 43,470,904 bytes
Disk cache : 227,020,800 bytes
Total swap memory : 1,077,501,952 bytes
Free swap memory : 1,077,501,952 bytes
1. is there any way I could increase the free physical
memory and reduce disk cache or disk buffers?
2. I always ran out of my virtual system memory in Windows,
but never in linux, and it seems that my linux box never uses
swap memory at all. So, is thare any way I could make linux
uses the swap memory?
