comment Confusing RAM usage metrics on a Linux VPS
Actually, I expected a usage of around 600/1536, as that is what I got from adding up the physical memory usage of each of the running applications (as displayed in top).

My fault for not clarifying the question. When I add up the amount of physical memory used by each process, I find a number significantly less than 1536MB (my total amount of physical memory). However, my total memory usage is listed as near the total amount of physical memory (1381/1536MB). What I'm referring to is the disparity between these two numbers. Thanks.

I'm sorry for not clarifying that the VPS used OpenVZ in my original question - it has been edited to say so. I now realize that the VPS has no swap space allotted to it, but am still curious as to how this resolves the numbers. Could someone please clarify on that aspect?

Hello! I'm using CleverKite (cleverkite.com), and it seems as because they provide an OpenVZ-based VPS, there is no swap space provided or even allowed. I'm still not sure how this explains the disappearing RAM, though.
