    Hi,

    I am running the following spec server, Duron 1.1Ghz CPU, 512MB Ram and a 40GB HD with Redhat 7.3 and CPanel/WHM 5.3 and I have noticed the Physical Memory Usage is very high it is over 90% + of usage with 0 Users and 0.00 CPU Load and the Swap Disk is always on 0% Used is this normal or has the server got a config problem ?

    After restarting the server it drops down but it goes back up to over 90%

    Regards,
    Garry

    Although a lot depends on Server setup and processes running, usage of 90% or more of memory is not uncommon -- even if Server is lightly used. Linux allocates almost all of RAM to be immediately available.
