I recently purchased a remote server plan for a few additional services that I need to run, that my previous hosting plan just couldn't support. (JIRA, another separate Tomcat instance, etc.)
I would rate my Unix/Linux knowledge as "fair", but I'm having troubles determining why my server is so strapped for memory.
Attached is a screenshot of
top running as root. The memory usage (adding the
%MEM columns) is about 16%, but the total amount of memory used as displayed at the top is well over 60%.
I've been trying to configure JIRA for the past day or so, but it is bailing out with memory issues about halfway through the process.
Note: I have submitted a ticket for tech support, and the admins from who I purchased the server are extremely knowledgeable, but it would be great to fix the issue in the meantime and learn a bit as well
