Sorry Lennart, I don't get your point. Perhaps is because I am using the free version of ESXi and this option is not available.
Check the vmware memory statistics and see if it has done that to
I checked it out yesterday and I found a more 'realistic' memory usage than the shown with top or free. I would like to post links containing the exported images of the charts but I don't know why some fields (the important ones) are not shown. I must go to the traditional way, printScreen + gimp...I also can post memory usage data exported in excel format if it is the interest of somebody. I will do it ASAP.
Well, I'm actually a bit confused here. I don't know in what direction should I go, I mean if I should investigate further and try to find an explanation for this or reinstall everything using a backported kernel or continuing the installation of the services and let's see what happens. Note that I am running out of time that's why I tried the official stable release because I thougth it will be pretty straightforward.
For now I am thinking to reboot every server, except Server4 which is running correctly (at least the memory usage showed seems reasonable to me), and then observe how they behave.
Thanks a lot for your help.
