netuitive.collectd.memory.utilizationpercent Under Linux, memory buffered and cached are part of memory which can beconsidered free. See the following explanation . Computation: 100 – ((memory.memory-buffered + memory.memory-cached +memory.memory-free / Total Memory) * 100) average percent 0 100 yes yes yes
