    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).
