I have a server running samba process and there
are about 70 samba users connected at a time. The system has 4Gb of
memory and it seems each samba process is utilizing only 3352Kb of
When I run the command
pmap -d (pid of samba)
It gives as:
b7ffa000 4 rw-s- 0000000000000000 0fd:00003 messages.tdb
bfe46000 1768 rw--- 00000000bfe46000 000:00000 [ stack ]
ffffe000 4 r-x-- 0000000000000000 000:00000 [ anon ]
mapped: 33384K writeable/private: 3352K shared: 20504K
But when I run the top command, it results as below:
Tasks: 163 total, 1 running, 162 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 0.9% us, 4.9% sy, 0.0% ni, 93.3% id, 0.8% wa, 0.2% hi, 0.0% si
Mem: 3895444k total, 3163192k used, 732252k free, 352344k buffers
Swap: 2097144k total, 208k used, 2096936k free, 2487636k cached
Why could the system be utilizing such high memory ? Any ideas ??
By the way, the server is not running other processes..
The samba version running in it is 3.0.33-0.17
I am confused what could be going wrong....
