    SNMP, TOP and GNOME-SYSTEM-MONITR which one is correct?


    Have an issue with several SLES servers in our network.

    SNMP (via Solarwinds) reports that a server is using 97% of it's
    memory

    TOP via command line reports that the server has 4145232K of memory and
    is using 38077872K

    GNOME-SYSTEM-MONITOR reports that the server is using 559Mib of memory
    out of 4.0GiB

    so readings one and two concern me, but reading 3 says everything is
    fine....

    Which one is correct? and how do we make sure the correct one is
    reported to snmp?

    Thanks!

    You'll need to supply more information. You don't say what version
    SLES?...x64? OES2? What else is running? Virtualized or no?

    These would all affect it. Plus I think x64 SLES has problems with
    SNMP...might be wrong on this, but I think it does.

    SLES 10SP2, SLES11, and SLES11SP1 both x86 and x64

    some are virtual, some are not. All physical run on HP hardware, the
    Virtual host is VMWARE

    none are OES, some do have eDir , 2 have IDM , others are straight
    linux used for non novell things
