    Hello and thanks for your time.

    What Linux shows vs. what WHM shows as memory utilization is different. Could someone please let me know if this is normal?

    I am not worried about load.
    load average: 0.09, 0.19, 0.12


    ------ Memory Usage Comparison --------------

    Top Output
    Mem: 12220496k total, 10715924k used, 1504572k free, 1492524k buffers


    System Info from WHM Service Status Page

    Memory Used 11.35% (1,386,824 of 12,220,496)
    Swap Used 0% (0 of 2,097,144)

    Top used includes buffers and cache while the Service Status does not.

    Click on Server information in WHM and scroll down to Current Memory Usage where should a "Mem:" line similar to top's numbers and then a "-/+ buffers/cache:" line showing the numbers without the buffers and cache included.
