How to check total memory in Linux

Written by James McDonald

Just checking if my Dreamhost VPS has had the memory reduced yet

Before:

[me@mybox]$ free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          2300         97       2202          0          0         12
-/+ buffers/cache:         84       2215
Swap:            0          0          0

After:

[me@mybox]$ free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:           300        112        187          0          0         13
-/+ buffers/cache:         99        200
Swap:            0          0          0
