You know that the OS is caching data, don't you. Better use the "free"
command and read the "-/+ buffers/cache:" line to get the actual memory
usage (minus the OS caching which has nothing to do with actual process
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 256352 246984 9368 0 21856 84620
-/+ buffers/cache: 140508 115844
Swap: 345356 260 345096
Means that on my system, I have barely 140Mb used, very very far from
the 500+ Mb listed...
