how to tell what's using memory?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
We've got a RH Linux ES 2.1 server (Redhat 7.2 smp) that has 3.5 Gig on board memory. We've got minimal processes running on this thing. Usually about 3.0 Gig RAM is free. however, we have an oc4j (java) application that uses up a small amount of memory, probably about 100Meg. Applications folks were stress testing this application over the weekend, and noticed that the application was using up memory. Then, they shut down the application, but the memory was not freed. Now we're trying to figure out why the memory was not freed. none of the application threads are showing up in the "ps" output, but the memory usage for the total system is at about 1.7Gig usage, with 1.8 Gig free. We expect there should be almost 3 Gig free. So how do we find out what's holding the rest of the mem?
