Ubuntu: Get RAM Usage

by on Jul.24, 2010, under Linux (Ubuntu)

Determining the free RAM or memory in Ubuntu is an easy task, and can be archieved by entering a single command :

cat /proc/meminfo | grep -i MemFree

If you wish to receive some more detailed information, simply remove the grep part and type the following command in your terminal :

cat /proc/meminfo

The free command will also do a similar job :

free -m
