    Hello,

    I'm a newbie to this forum.
    I'm hoping you can help me.
    I have a website hosted on a managed VPS (CentOS).

    Recently I ranthe free -t -m command which the following output:

    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 1024 895 128 2 0 601
    -/+ buffers/cache: 294 729
    Swap: 0 0 0
    Total: 1024 895 128

    My concern relates to the "shared 2". What does it mean ? Should I be concerned?
    I can provide further details if necessary.
    Also, should I install more memory?

    Thank you for your help!!

    Hello :)

    You can typically ignore the "Shared" memory column because it's obsolete. You may find the following thread helpful:
