    Virtuozzo memory values

    I'm trying a new VPS providers since the one I had before stop responding to my tickets and gave up offering VPS as well (story for another day). Can some of you tell me what you think of the memory values from Virtuozzo belong that I'm getting. I seems to be hitting memory limits with just one low use forum and two install of CMS (that have a few modules in one, fresh install in the other).

    vmguarpages: 0 33,792 2,147,483,647 4K-pages
    oomguarpages: 25,627 26,112 2,147,483,647 4K-pages
    privvmpages: 62,965 65,536 69,632 4K-pages

    Reading over some of the older posts here suggest oomguarpages soft limit should be similar if not greater than vmguarpages, but it's not in this case.

    Are you running a control panel, and if so, what control panel.
    How much ram do you have on the server.
    These 2 questions are a couple of key things to check for when it comes to ram usage

    The VPS comes with Virtuozzo and Plesk.


    How much ram do you have on the server.
    I was hoping you guys were going to tell me from those numbers.

    The VPS were just at 100% resource, needing me to restart it before I can FTP into it. It's now at 88% and raising.

    Why don't you execute the commands in your VPS?

    The second line appears to be a another box. Judging from the amount of RAM it has, looks like it is the VPS host node while the first one appears to be the vm.

    They were. SSH'd into the VPS using one of the virtual hosting login I created.

    I had to change to root to get a non-blank response for "cat /proc/user_beancounters". The quoted response for "free -m" was after I came out of root. The response is the same whether I am root or not.

    Oops, I was confused earlier by the SSH sessions.

    Anyway, the "free -m" is showing the total memory of 3GB (which I claimed earlier that it was the host node's RAM).

    Your privvmpages has a lot of failcnt and it is really a sign that you should upgrade your VPS.

    What is the size of VPS that you subscribe exactly? Why don't you give this handy software a try and post your output here again?

    That looks like a great tool. I am going to have to test it out.

    No idea. They don't specify on their website (I know, I know, but this were a temporary solution to get my sites & email back up before looking into a permanent solution).

    Before reboot.
    [root@***]# /bin/Free
    VPS Memory:
    Total: 132 mb Used: 255 mb (100%) Free: -123 mb (0%)
    Immediately after reboot (again).
    [root@***]# /bin/Free
    VPS Memory:
    Total: 132 mb Used: 228 mb (100%) Free: -96 mb (0%)
    It seems the memory usage keep going up even when I'm not doing anything. All that's there is a low usage SMF forum, with a no content Drupal 5 with a few packages, and a completely fresh install of Drupal 6 that I have removed web access to. Unusually high?

    Looks like your VPS has 128MB RAM (Total: 132 mb) but it is using its Burstable RAM now (Free: -123 mb). You can't stay long by keep using the Burstable RAM.

    I wouldn't comment on what is hosted in the VPS first because having Plesk + OS alone will need you at least 128MB RAM upon reboot.

    Judging the failcnt you get, your choice is really to upgrade to a larger VPS plan with more RAM. Otherwise you can't really depend much on this VPS.

    Yeah, I worked that out already with those figures. I am planning on getting more memory for it, as soon as they responds to my tickets. Seems human only work there 9-5 Mon-Fri, like I said temporary solution while I look for a better one for the longer term. I will be starting another thread discussing what I need etc. soon.

    Thanks for all the help.

    You're welcome.

    Just bump this thread up again if you need any help with your memory

    Good luck!
