MemoryΒΆ

Glances uses two columns: one for the RAM and one for the SWAP.

../_images/mem.png

If enough space is available, Glances displays extended information for the RAM:

../_images/mem-wide.png

A character is also displayed just after the MEM header and shows the trend value:

Trend Status
- MEM value is equal to the mean of the six latests refreshes
\ MEM value is lower than the mean of the six latests refreshes
/ MEM value is higher than the mean of the six latests refreshes

Alerts are only set for used memory and used swap.

Legend:

RAM/Swap Status
<50% OK
>50% CAREFUL
>70% WARNING
>90% CRITICAL

Note

Limit values can be overwritten in the configuration file under the [memory] and/or [memswap] sections.
