Description Rik van Riel 2010-08-24 02:38:34 UTC
Description of problem:

free_memory () {
    awk '/^(MemFree|Buffers|MemCached):/ {free += $2}; END {print free}' \
                /proc/meminfo
}

The above code looks for a MemCached line in /proc/meminfo, which has never existed.  Instead, the name is just Cached.

RHEL6 ksmtuned gets this right, but for some reason Fedora 13 still has the bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
