    What do you mean by "killing " your memory...? Is your server load high, you get high swap usage?

    If it's just your RAM that gets full, that's perfectly normal on a linux server...

    Yep, 95%+ memory usage on a unix machine, even when "doing nothing", is usually normal. Over time, the operating system caches commonly used (system) stuff in memory as a faster "cache" or whatever.

    I'm not sure what the command is in linux, but in BSD - you can type:


    To see how much of your swap space is being used. If its more than a few %, then yep - you have some resource issues. Otherwise, just worry if your CPU or swap is out of control.
