VPS: What's using all my RAM?
I'm running a vB forum (runemart.com), and my VPS has the following specs:
CentOS 5.3 64-bit
In my VPS control panel, it's saying that I'm using around 350MB to 450MB RAM - this is 24/7, it never goes below 350MB. At the moment all I'm running is a vB forum, that doesn't have many memory consuming plugins (such as no shoutbox at the moment).
Is it normal for a vB forum to use so much RAM? Is there any way that I can find out what's using the RAM?
Just depends...The OS is probably using 100MB or so. If Apache isn't optimized then it could use 70+MB per process. This is quite possible.
