Re: Finding the Bottleneck
AFAIK, even if there was a gig of ram in there, it would not allocate any
(or maybe just a little) to free memory, and would throw any free memory
into buffers anyway.
So 68M of buffers tells me it has ample free memory, it or wouldn't
allocate so much there anyway, right?
