    should I be concerned about...

    There there...

    i've got a raq4r... here are the results of my "top"... should I be concerned about the memory being low? the server only hosts 12 sites and there is very little traffic to the web sites. all the sites use a mysql database though.

    9:50am up 79 days, 19:42, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
    62 processes: 61 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
    CPU states: 1.7% user, 6.0% system, 0.0% nice, 92.1% idle
    Mem: 257636K av, 236956K used, 20680K free, 535172K shrd, 40236K buff
    Swap: 131448K av, 10576K used, 120872K free 103608K cached

    Looks about right to me... but why not add 256MB while it's so cheap? Crucial = best you can get for your RaQ = $40!

    You could experience a number of hard-to-diagnose problems with cheap RAM. Believe me, I took a chance recently with $1000 order of Zeus Components RAM at $35 a stick, and wound up sending it all back for Crucial at $75 (at the time)... for the small amount of money you'd save, it's not even worth thinking about. Besides, Crucial offers free 2nd day, you can't go wrong.
