Weird thing: df -h print out question


Check out this:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 3.9G 160M 3.5G 5% /
/dev/sda6 44G 33M 42G 1% /home
none 1.3G 0 1.3G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda7 99M 12M 82M 13% /tmp
/dev/sda3 5.8G 743M 4.8G 14% /usr
/dev/sda2 9.7G 61M 9.1G 1% /var

This is after I initiate a df -h command.

My only question is: what is /dev/shm ? it says ithas 1.3g of space.

Anyone know what that is?
