    Hi Guys,

    I've just installed my RHEL 4 and install Plesk beta 7.5.4 on my server which is basically empty (not hosting anything)

    I have dual Xeon 3.0 processor with 2 gig of ram

    After installing Plesk beta, I check my server statistic and plesk is show 98% usage of memory!!

    Why is that so? We are not running any website, basically nothing there as it is a new server.

    My swap file is showing as 0%.

    Would appreciate if someone can tell me why is Plesk show 98% usage of memory. Thanks in advance

    linux will naturally use the extra memory as a cache and frees it upon demand.

    free -m

    according to what applications see, you have the memory free for what's listed under "free" for the row "-/+ buffers/cache"

    an unused resource is a wasted resource.
