fudd:/home# free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 374 371 3 0 0 28
-/+ buffers/cache: 342 32
Swap: 384 4 380
This is my partition layout aswell:
fudd:/home# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
1.4G 157M 1.2G 12% /
15M 7.7M 7.7M 50% /boot
2.4G 1.3G 1.1G 52% /usr
1.9G 98M 1.8G 6% /var
27G 21G 6.2G 78% /home
All but / are xfs partitions.
