One how to you see how much Ram is being taking by a particular program (plesk) or how do you just see how much memory is being used and available? I thought it was top, i could be wrong.

Does anyone know if plesk takes up that much memory?

My servers seem to run a bit slower then normal. all i do is host websites and email.

Thanks

run 'top', find the program plesk in the list, and check the rss column.

The memory statistics in top are a bit misleading, i.e. you have to add 'free', 'buffers' and 'cached' to really see how much memory is really 'available' (although it kinda depends on how you define available). Linux correctly works on the prinsiple that unused memory is a wasted resource, so it buffers and caches everything very aggressively.

For general memory stats, you'd most often just 'cat /proc/meminfo'

cheers
