Linux Is Acting Weird.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Well, when I am on the internet, linux just slows up. And it is not that I am opening any heavy applications. Even just opening my mail is sometimes slow. I update everytime the little icon tells me to. So is there any clever code i can punch in and run a check if everything is in fact as it should be?

thats odd. It is not like linux to bog down like that. You could check your memory usage with the free command

shane@mainbox ~ $ free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 516192 509944 6248 0 18652 364356
-/+ buffers/cache: 126936 389256
Swap: 498004 7944 490060

the number 389256 is my actual unused memory. If your usused memory(free) is low, that may be your problem.

ok, this is what the free command tells me:

total used free shared buffers cached

Mem: 256080 246620 9460 0 19112 79716

-/+ buffers/cache: 147792 108288

Swap: 257032 34288 222744

Is that good?
