I’m sorry I just realized that I was looking at the swap usage.
But why is 92% of the memory being used for cached and 8% being used. I am using the Plex server and Transmission. I have also have to about once a week uninstall plex and reinstall plex because it seems to stop working. It will not show me any of my media files, but once uninstall it and reinstall it all my media is back.
@mpg Welcome to the Rockstor community. You might now consider editing this threads title to be more reflective of youre main issue, which now looks like its Plex related. This is bound to help with catching the eye of those that might be able to chip in and help. On your memory question: linux systems tend to try and use as much memory as they can given it’s such useful stuff. The memory used above that required to hold actual programs is most probably allocated to disc caching and the like. The following command in a terminal can tell you how much memory is being used for what, you might have to lookup the meanings of some of the sections though.
Nice tally of how much memory is being used for what.
Please note that there have been some recent issues with the Plex rock-on and I am unsure if they have been sorted as of yet. Anyone care to chip in with any updates on this. I believe it is currently not recommended as there were some worrying behaviours observed in the upstream docker container used by Rockstor. There are plans to sort this but I don’t know what stage those plans are at. Currently it looks like we are best off not using it though according to the following post:- http://forum.rockstor.com/t/please-dont-install-plex-rock-on/537
