System : Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.8.0-34-generic x86_64)

I am using webmin to see the system since i am not a Linux Expert. Since last week there is an unusual memory usage in my system. Is this normal ?

enter image description here

Also here is my HTOP Output & vmstat 2 10

Please let me know if you need any more information to track this.

What services do you install and use on your machine? What is the whole size of your RAM and SWAP? –  shgnInc Dec 18 '13 at 6:49

@NikhilM, no one can make out the process causing memory usage from the information you have provided. Please give full top output, or rather check which process is using most memory. –  saji89 Dec 18 '13 at 7:05
