Locallly installed ubuntu desktop consuming too much memory.

Ubuntu @ October 12, 2013   Views:0

My Locally installed Ubuntu 12 started to slow down last week and i added another 4 GB ram to the second slot... restarted and it worked fine (previous i was only using 2 GB).

Now, this week again... the memory issue.

You can see that out of 6 GB... only small amount of memory is available... we are not using this server to host an actual site or something... the server is being used for running local projects (php, Mysql, Apache) by around 5 - 10 people at a time.

Any tips on how i can get the memory issue fixed?



Look at the amount of cached memory - 3877. This is memory held in reserved. So, there is plenty of memory available. Think of this as ready to use memory. Run this command and see what is actually using the memory.





alright... now i see it. top brings up utserver (utorrent server i installed last week)... didn't realize it would consume that much memory.

Thanks anyways.
