No, RAM doesn't retain anything when the power is removed from a module. While it may be possible to add this functionality using a small flash RAM chip over and above the "normal" RAM, it would add to the cost and complexity. Futhermore, flash RAM has a limited number of writes, which means that the Flash RAM will probably reach the write limit way ...

What Lifeboy wrote - no RAM modules are equipped with anything like SMART, like a hard drive, so you cannot have a report of power up time or read/write cycle count... (cycle counts would be pointless as well, as there would have to be billions of entries, as not all "bits" are read/written evenly - some bits might be overused, and others may never be used). ...

I would search on the official Dell part number. It's not about the OEM for RAM like this. It's about the compatible part numbers (from Dell's perspective). Buy SNPX3R5MC/8G.

Unless you are downloading the file to /dev/shm or a tmpfs file system wget, by itself, shouldn't be using gigabytes of memory. Heck, it shouldn't even be using megabytes worth. It is highly unlikely that wget is consuming that much memory. How are you checking its usage? If you run top -o RES it will sort by memory (non-shared) utilisation. Ignore the ...

Windows will only give memory to a process if and when the process asks for it. Windows won't give away memory to processes that don't ask for it, even if it has plenty of free memory. Looks to me like Python isn't asking for any more than 243MB of memory. Why do you feel like this Python script should be requesting more memory from the operating system? ...

This question is on the borderline of shopping, but I can tell you our experience with those servers. Dell, like any other server vendor, wants your unborn children for upgrades after you've bought a server. My solution was to replace all the RAM in the system with Kingston system-specific memory, which have a lifetime guarantee and is 100% compatible. ...

Ghost runs a single node process per instance. I believe what you're seeing there is that htop shows the underlying threads of processes, so it looks like you have one Ghost instance running but node/v8 has five active threads. Despite JavaScript being single-threaded, the engine/vm itself can be multi-threaded. We (the Ghost project) do pay attention to ...

The error message is almost certainly due to faulty hardware. It is quite understandable that Ubuntu would not report the error while it was running inside a virtual machine rather than on the real hardware. It is possible you have been having this problem for a while without realizing. I don't know if Windows would have logged this kind of event or where it ...

If I'm understanding your question and the concern is about what memory is share-able between container instances, then the answer to that question for shared libraries is that it depends. Quoting: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/docker-user/wCDC_sXzbks/i1gjlgQbxWEJ The second benefit is that copy-on-write and page sharing apply to all processes on the ...
