If you disable swappiness, your RAM will get more full. If you increase swappiness, the data in RAM will get paged out to the swap partition when your ram reaches a certain level. Ram will get full but it's not always a problem. If you really want to do something about it, you can run the following command to clear your cash: (warning: If you have installed ...

Yes - its possible using cgroups. Refer to cgroups doc. There are lots of examples on the net could search.

The effects of optimization are often difficult to judge. They can however be measured by benchmarking tools. I would like to recommend for speed up the use of the zram tool which creates a small swap area in the ram and makes the use of programs much faster, the use of preload that logs the use of programs and makes the reading from the disk for the ...

System do not know what is "too much ram" or "too slow" or "important applications". You must manually setup this limits for your program. See topics: oom-killer, renice.

As a complementary answer in GameDev about porting a steam game to Linux, it could depend on many factors. Here are the comparison: We can see that on Linux is double the amount of memory. Apart from reasons mentioned in the link about compilers, libraries and more, from the Steam and Game developer perspective, they want to make sure that the game runs ...

No, Actually zombie process is In UNIX System terminology, a process that has terminated, but whose parent has not yet waited for it, is called a zombie. The ps(1) command prints the state of a zombie process as Z. If we write a long-running program that forks many child processes, they become zombies unless we wait for them and fetch their ...

Zombie processes don’t use up any system resources. (Actually, each one uses a very tiny amount of system memory to store its process descriptor.) However, each zombie process retains its process ID (PID) Linux systems have a finite number of process IDs – 32767 by default on 32-bit systems. If zombies are accumulating at a very quick rate – for example, if ...

To be clear, your monitor itself does not "require" certain amounts of RAM, but your GPU might. Also, RAM cannot manage anything other than some very low-level functions within itself. When your system boots up, the BIOS or EFI will decide how much (if any) RAM your integrated GPU will need and "hard reserve" it from your system RAM to be used exclusively ...

Perhaps you installed the 32-bit version of Ubuntu. To check, open up a termianl and type uname -p. That will tell you if you have 32-bit (in which you'll get iX86, where X can be anything) or x86_64, 64-bit. You should have 64-bit. If not, it's time to back up and reinstall. Also, you have 12GB of RAM, which is quite a bit. I think that you should set your ...

If you have a 64 bit processor, I think it's best to use a 64 bit OS when available. It doesn't matter what video card you have. But with 64 bit, you can access more than 4 GB of RAM if you decide you need it later. But you can't upgrade from 32 to 64 bit, so once you install one, you would need to reinstall to change in the future. One thing to remember ...

Your processor is 64 bit with 4 cores, you have enough memory to comfortable work, so why not to install 64 bit system ? You definitely should try it. You will be satisfied with performance of ubuntu 14.04 64 bit

It's a common practice on laptops. The Graphic memory is usually shared with the main RAM of the system and it is dynamic, which means it increases and decreases on demand. It can grow until 1,7 GB, and this value seems standard if you have a system with 4,0 GB of RAM, on Intel systems it's called DVMT: Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) is a method ...

There is wajig, a tool that adds another layer of more highlevel command line UI to the dpkg-... and apt-... tools. It has just the feature you need: $ wajig large lists the largest installed packages, counting the total size when unpacked and installed. That may be much larger than the *.deb file - it depends on file count and sizes instrange ways. ...

In Dualboot mode you can only run one operating system at a time. So the running Operating system will get full resources, whether its ram , cpu, hdd etc. Read more here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-booting If you want to use multiple os simultaniously you can use virtualization software like Virtualbox or Vmware etc. These software will allow you ...

I got tired of the error and just uninstalled java. That worked. A little extreme, but with such a small memory quota, the java VM would always be pretty useless anyway.
