Ok I managed to get all data you asked :-)

At this moment

srv1:~# free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          3956       3538        418          0          0        181
-/+ buffers/cache:       3356        600
Swap:         9538         51       9486

Vmstat 5 output is here


cat /proc/meminfo' taken 3 times is here


Am I running short on RAM?

doesn't this

-/+ buffers/cache:       3356        600

say I still have 600 MB free RAM at this point?
