One thought on - What Free Memory Range Is Safe To Operate?

  • Free memory as in unused or free memory as in available (unused + disk buffers)?

    Google: Linux ate my RAM

    Output of `free` from your system may provide some context.

    Now-a-days as long as swap is barely used (single digit percent) the system is usually healthy.

    If the system “runs out of RAM” swap would fill up (`sar` gives historical data which often helps ID hangs or reboots due to apps running a system out of RAM) and OOM is seen in messages/dmesg.
