check amount of memory
What can you type on the command line to find out how much memory a Linux box has? It's a Red Hat machine, and no, I'm not in front of it, so I can't try to use the GUI. :rolleyes:

The command free should do it.

$ free
Will tell you how much memory is available, how much is used, and how much is swapped, as well asother metrics associated with memory.

see the man page for details...
