You have two options or even more for doing so, the one delivered with ubuntu itself is the command top, and you can as well have it more comfortable with htop which you need to install through sudo apt-get install htop.

As long as you have free space on the hard drive directly after your Ubuntu partition then you can extend it as much as you have space. Your files will be safe, however, it's always a must to backup your data before doing any operation with your partitions. A wrong key stroke could be disastrous. If you don't have space behind your Ubuntu partition, and ...

My suggestion would be to get the exact model of your machine like so: sudo dmidecode | grep "System Information" -A 3 then go to a retail site like http://crucial.com and search their database for upgrade options.

Expect zswap to work extremely badly---make performance much worse---if you fill memory with random bytes, especially if you randomly touch lots of memory in a hurry. zram compresses the contents of pages of memory, and compression only works if the data are not random. Real data (especially in-memory data) is usually fairly compressible. zram also only ...

These can be enabled through the use of the /sys filesystem using root credentials. For the CPU, you change the "0" to a "1" in to the appropriate file of the pattern: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/online. For the RAM, you find the state in the files /sys/devices/system/memory/memory*/state and change the contents from offline to online. The script below ...

PHP has a setting that limits how much memory a single script can use. It doesn't matter how much total RAM your system has if you exceed that value. If you're running at the console, the file that affects it is likely /etc/php5/cli/php.ini and has a line that reads: memory_limit = XXXXXXX To remove the limit entirely, change it to read: memory_limit = ...

I like the output that sudo dmidecode -t 17 gives. Here's what it says about my machine: # dmidecode 2.12 # SMBIOS entry point at 0x000f0480 SMBIOS 2.7 present.

It was a BIOS firmware problem, While the motherboard supported 8gb of RAM, the motherboard firmware (Dell) didn't. After updating this it worked - for anyone reading who has a Dell Inspiron 530, with a foxconn g33m motherboard, I did have to use HPUSBDISK tool to create a DOS usb to flash the bios, as I received memory errors when I used Rufus

This could be a hardware or a BIOS firmware problem. First if all I'd try to identify that the RAM modules are OK, by putting the new ones into slots 0-1 (or which definitely work). If that doesn't help, I would check the modules on another motherboard. If that doesn't help, I'd try to update the BIOS firmware. If that sounds too risky, try replacing the ...

I'm also running 16.04 and had a problem with this process just today. It wasn't smashing my RAM or swap, but mediascanner-service-2.0 and mediascanner-extractor-2.0 were preventing me from safely ejecting a USB drive with a lot of photos on it. Attempts to pskill the processes were immediately followed by the process restarting and continuing to hammer the ...
