CentOS memory usage question
Posted on 2009-05-01
I have a new server running CentOS LAMP.
It's a fresh install, no sites, mail, or anything else on the server. It is a virtual server on a cloud.
When I run top, I get:
top - 13:46:46 up 1 day, 9:50, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
Tasks: 57 total, 2 running, 55 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 0.0%us, 0.0%sy, 0.0%ni,100.0%id, 0.0%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st
Mem: 786432k total, 486636k used, 299796k free, 69556k buffers
Swap: 1048568k total, 0k used, 1048568k free, 283168k cached
Is it normal for the memory used to be this high when there is no load?
