comment Using Ubuntu htop, I'm checking my memory and it says it's using ~530/590mb, is this safe?
@Zoredache my system says it only needs 3mb of ram using the min_free_kbytes command below. Also, going by what Dave has said, do you still think I need more ram? Was my free_kbytes not correct because my server was not under much load at the time and infact I need more than 3mb of ram?

@DavidSchwartz Aha, great, thanks for your help. I mean, I was worried htop was lulling me into a false sense of security, because it's mem gage was still green even though it seemingly had little ram left. I'll keep an eye on it anyway and I have a much better idea of what to look for now. Thanks again, much appreciated.

@DavidSchwartz Ahh. Okay, so I need to adjust some cache ratio settings? Where might I find those?

@DavidSchwartz Okay, I kind of understand what you're saying, basically, a context might arise where the available cached ram might not be available so I need actual free ram. So either I need to turn off some services using up ram or add some ram.

@DavidSchwartz yea, but isn't the one below 14, the 75, available ram that is cached?

I haven't ran into any problems as of yet, but this website has only just gone live with hardly any traffic. I just don't want to be putting out fires within a week. I just checked free -m and it says I have buffers/cache free 59 and your command gave me 3mb, so I think im right to say I'm pretty safe?

@Zoredache ah yes, I just got to that in the article you linked. I've edited my question and included the free -m screenshot. It still says ~75 free so is that enough?

comment Apache hitting 90-100% on ubuntu “top”, how do I find what's causing the extra cpu cycles?
@Ahmadgeo htop is much better than top, thanks. I figured it out anyway, it was some javascript repeatedly calling admin-ajax.

I'm actually using relic already but I haven't really looked into it much, I didn't realize it was that thorough.
