Checking RAM Usage - Linux


Recommended Posts

I'm using the "free -m" command to check my RAM usage on my VPS. I was wondering how I should be interpreting my output. Which numbers should I be looking at to determine if I can run another bot on my VPS or not?




I'm mostly confused with the difference between the first line (that starts with "Mem:") and the second line (that starts with "-/+ buffers/cache") as well as what buffers and cache are.


Do I have 591 MB of free RAM? or 938 MB of free RAM?


Thanks in advanced for your help.
