No idea how to analyze this... well, I mean... i'm off to read logs but it's looking like memory is just being tapped.
Architecture: Redhat 8 kernel 2.4.20-18.8 on a 686 p4 400 is the gateway... pppoe... static ip.
~ two desktops on a 100 switch... and the 1/4 gig of ram on the redhat went down to kbs and top said I was using swap!!
so yeah, I'll put in more ram... but what's not letting go of memory? On the server? gah! ?? The interfaces are on desktops!
OK ENOUGH GEEKness...
Time for bed... I've got to go to work tomorrow. ug.
see ya in the morning. :)
