resource differences between x and command line


hi,


i am using mandrake 10 as a server, and to help me learn linux. those are tied together really. (im newb dont make fun of the choice plz).

my question is, how do i find out how much of the system resources the graphical enviroment uses? im using whatever version of kde came with it.

the main reason i ask is becuase after a few months as sitting there, the computer quits responding, as if its stuck in a hibernation mode. this is not bothersome really, becuase it is still working fine as a server.

If its just sitting as a server, im assuming its better to not use the graphical enviroment. I did find out from previous posts how to change it to boot from one or the other already. the kde site wasnt to helpful in finding this information.

an insight is appreciated thanks

Have a look at
top b c n 1 | sort -g -k 5,5


Then add up the respective processes memory usages :)



Cheers,
Tink
