Use the following command in a shell to find out what the memory configuration is of your Linux machine:


which produces something like this:

              total         used         free       shared      buffers
  Mem: 3073224 2969612 103612 0 94308
 Swap: 530044 68052 461992
Total: 3603268 3037664 565604

Which says (in this example) that this machine has 3Gb RAM of which 2.97 Gb is being used, and that this machine has a swap file has (virtual memory) o 0.5 Gb ... (of which only 68 Mb is being used).
