Memory usage? What dopes this represent
The Memory usage has slowly risen on my box
I run a psfense 1.22 on a p3 1000 with 1GB ram and 6GB HD
with squid, squid guard and a vpn tunnel.
PFsense is AMAZING love it, but I am trying to figure out what the stats represent.
currently my memory usage is at 62% it used to be at 50% is this too high, and what does this memory usage represent? how can i lower this number?
my cpu usage seems to be small and disk usage is 15% this number changes, but I'm more concerned about the memory usage as 62% and growing may be problematic if it continues to rise.

A search of the forum will give you many other threads about memory usage.
In short - at 62% memory usage you're wasting 38% of your memory. A modern OS will use all available memory for disk caches - high values of memory usage are normal and good (as long as you're not hitting swap, in which case you don't have enough memory installed).
CPU usage - that's different - if you're regularly running at 100% you'd be in trouble. Low values are fine.
