According to the Ubuntu wiki, Ubuntu requires a minimum of 1024 MB of RAM, but 2048 MB is recommended for daily use. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements You may also consider a version of Ubuntu running an alternate desktop environment requiring less RAM, such as Lubuntu or Xubuntu. Lubuntu is said to run fine with 512 MB of ...

This tool is not including disk cache in what it is reporting as "free". Your system is swapping in order to maintain a reasonably sized disk cache. Please see my answer to this question for more information. Here's an excerpt: Each application can use some of your memory. Linux uses all otherwise unoccupied memory (except for the last few Mb) as ...

Is such behavior normal or not depends on how it freezes: if it's freezes due to failure of one of the services or kernel — this is a bug, but if it's freezes only for limited time (like 20 minutes, until some processes will get into swap, and other get out of swap) — this is expected behavior. I don't think usual Ubuntu distributive can be normally run on ...

It is normal this to happen, because when the RAM usage gets higher than the RAM itself, the system starts to swap to disk, which makes the system very slow, and in your case unusable. If you want to run Ubuntu smoothly, think about upgrading your PC to atleast 2GB of RAM.

I am far from an expert on the topic but given that no one with more knowledge on it has answered I will try to provide a very rough idea to you. As far as I understand "lens" is the generic term for the search functionality of the Ubuntu Dash (Dash being the thing that appears when you click the upper-left corner in the default installation). So, you can ...

First you should open the terminal input the command free, then past the results it here. So that we may help you. If you prefer here are some patches not solutions: I would recommend a full clean install. (at the bottom I have explained how to do it) A quick patch not a solution might be installing gnome partition editor. Then resize your partition. The ...

It is not normal - it should occupy more. Linux uses any unneeded RAM to copy there files from HDD that it has accessed and expects to access more. It keeps files there until memory is actually needed. Leave it alone.

This also happened to me pretty often on Minecraft and Hl2DM. I solved it by limiting the FPS to about 30. SNA UXA switching didn't work for me. I'm running Lubuntu 13.10 on Dell Vostro 3450.

You can check what Ubuntu version are you running via uname -a If you have the 32bit version (i386) you have to install the 64bit version (x86_64) to let your computer address more that 4GiB (Gibibytes) of RAM. This is due to tecnhnical limitations of the 32bit width, as explained at the beginning of this very nice Wikipedia page. Please note that ...

You probably don't need to upgrade any hardware in order to comfortably run a virtual instance of Ubuntu on that, but more RAM is never a bad thing.

Straight from the Debian wiki. For me, this is the easiest. First, copy and paste this code into /etc/init.d/zram ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: zram # Required-Start: $local_fs # Required-Stop: $local_fs # Default-Start: S # Default-Stop: 0 1 6 # Short-Description: Use compressed RAM as in-memory swap # Description: Use ...

While I'm not exactly familiar with how top formatting works, I can offer a few work-arounds. PS ps command is comes with procps package and is among standard utilities, that is readily available on your system. -aux switches will output processes for all users and programs on the system, while --sort %mem is used to sort output by % of memory used. In ...

Top displays the active processes, including the memory. System monitor is the user friendly (GUI) way to memory usage analysis, provided the applications are still open. Also, take a note that, once memory used in a session by a program, it may be still in a buffer until it's needed by another program. From the manual: free displays the total amount of ...

Hmmmm....Java performance is not necessarily tied to the size of the heap size. By increasing the max size you do prevent one source of out of memory errors (there are other things that generate this java error). The only efficiency is gained by reducing the number of calls to increase stack memory size if you set the preallocated heap to the maximum ...

You could use java -Xmx4096m in order to set your heap to 4 GB. you could then add export _JAVA_OPTIONS=-Xmx4096m to your shell by their (.bashrc, .zshrc) file.
