virtual memory usage very high

My webmin dashboard shows 98% virtual memory usage since the past few days. Real memory usage is only 14%
Is there anything wrong, if yes how do I troubleshoot this?


What is the output of this command:

free -m


free -m was showing swap at near 98%. I restated the server and now its back to 0% virtual memory usage and 7% real memory usage.
Hopefully it stays that way. Whats the command to show which process is using up the virtual memory?


You can run “ps auxw”, and then review the memory usage of your various processes. You can also run “top”, and sort the output by memory usage.


thanks :slight_smile:
