LXer: Supreme Court Will Hear A Case That Could Finally Shut Down East Texas As The Patent Troll Mecca
I am having strange memory issues and inconsistent reports.
Used memory out of my 16 GB of RAM:free -m : 6,5 GB. Htop : 7,8 GB Glances : 7,2 GB Gnome monitor : 5,1 GB
How to explain such gaps?
And even the lowest estimation is huge. I have one browser with 10 tabs, files and 2 terminals opened.
The worst is that there is no process really eating that much memory, so I don't know where it goes. When checking the top user space processes, they take at most 2 GB.
And kernel :% grep Slab /proc/meminfo Slab: 939152 kB
Has something changed in kernel memory management ?
How to have a view of what is really happening ?
For the same kind of session in Fedora 24, I used to be more around 3 GB of used memory.submitted by /u/phocean
