I see alot of mentioning and explaining about the command top but can't
quite figure it out yet ...
here's what my top looks like --- please explain it to me - thanks
59 processes: 57 sleeping, 2 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states: 0.5% user, 0.5% system, 0.0% nice, 98.8% idle
Mem: 126328K av, 121940K used, 4388K free, 0K shrd, 6744K buff
Swap: 152576K av, 51376K used, 101200K free 53932K cached
PID USER PRI NI SIZE RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM TIME COMMAND
6735 root 14 0 203M 179M 5164 R 0.3 145.2 12:53 X
For example, does it mean it is using 121 mb / 128 mb available ram ?
what's buff ? cached ?
And it seems like X is taking 145.2 % of my memory ... however, the
system still run very well , I once had 1 X session run for 20 days
straight without having problem .. that makes me more curious about this.
