    Memory Installed = ?

    So I just got a server set up for me (leasing). I specified 4 gigs of ram. However in my TOP stats or with a 'free mem' query, I see:

    Mem: 3554328k av

    Seems to me that doesn't equal 4 gigs... Is there some reason behind this, or do I need to call up the host? Thanks!

    Try dmesg, and see what it says. Many times you will only get 3.6GB usable RAM even when 4GB is installed.
