my current prod. system says this:
4:40pm up 15 days, 2:11, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
48 processes: 47 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states: 0.9% user, 0.5% system, 0.0% nice, 98.4% idle
Mem: 62284K av, 60300K used, 1984K free, 0K shrd, 9016K buff
Swap: 200772K av, 424K used, 200348K free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 62284 60168 2116 0 9016 8604
-/+ buffers/cache: 42548 19736
Swap: 200772 424 200348
so, how can I tell when I really start needing more RAM ?
