conky vs top memory usage reports
« on: January 28, 2009, 04:20:41 PM »
Did you ever notice that while running "top" and conky at the same time , conky reports ram usage (for my system loaded up with 10 extensions) of 31MBs and top reports memory usage of 448MBs (67MBs of buffers and 349MBs of cache). I think conky's ram report is not all that useful.

Depends on what you want to see... 448-67-349 ~= 31
