I will have to concur with the RAM misreporting true values.
root@TNAS-xxxxxx:~# free
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 982332 939580 42752 8912 116652
-/+ buffers: 822928 159404
Swap: 1998780 58480 1940300
While on TOS I get:
Memory Space
Total 1024 MB
Used 298 MB

Have a read of:

https://www.networkworld.com/article/27 ... linux.html

The concept of "free" memory on Linux is a little different to what you might be familiar with in the Windows world.

Code: Select all

free
vmstat
top
cat /proc/meminfo
The ssh shell commands above will all show different views of memory usage. In essence, the system will use large chunks of memory for temporary buffering and caching (this is a good thing) rather than leaving it sitting around unused. The "available" memory figure is probably the best one to look for as this shows how much memory the system can free up if needed for applications etc. Hope that helps.

Is TOS 4.1.30 compatible with previously published TOS patch 1.02 and Iniboot?
Are those 2 included in 4.1.30 or should they be applied separately?
In which order?

Thanks to be very specific, so that users know what to apply to production units (not beta).

How do I enter the console and see the uses of ram memory?
How do you open the free command to see memory usage?
I have never done it, I have always trusted the main panel in TOS, but I am curious to see what memory tells me that it is spending.
Physically I have the integrated memory that came with 2gb, and an extra 8gb ddr, total 10gb. When I bought the tnas, the specifications stated that it supported up to 10gb of ram memory.
Regards.

As an example, the TOS interface shows my F5-221 has 6GB total memory (2GB onboard + 4GB addon) and runs at a fairly steady 30%ish memory usage.
If I look at the free memory displayed in the command line it shows only about 600MB which would work out at over 90% usage, however if I look at the available memory figure it shows about 4GB which equates to the figure displayed in the TOS interface (only rough figures). Like I said, Linux will make use of memory, if it can, to buffer and cache transfers etc but none of this memory is locked as such and if an application starts that needs the memory it would be released to it.

The TOS interface provides the facility to show running processes and the memory/CPU time they consume so I'd only be worried if this shows a process constantly using a large chunk of memory, alternatively the same can be seen in the command line using the "top" command.

If you want to find out more on how to access your NAS via command line or how to get the best use out of the top command then I'm sure Google will be your best friend :-)

As a starter, this link appears to give a good introduction to the SSH shell from a Windows based machine:

https://mediatemple.net/community/produ ... -(windows)

You'll also need to make sure that SSH is enabled for the internal network only in the TOS control panel under the network section, also make a note of the port number as you'll need that to log in via SSH. The login details are the same as the admin/pass you use to get in to the TOS interface.

Closing thought, be careful if you login to the command line and only do it if you're comfortable that what you want to do there isn't going to mess anything up! If you're not sure, don't do it and if you do it anyway make sure you have a backup of you data first. In fact, make sure you have a backup of your data regardless :D

@macmpi
yes, the patch 1.02 and new update for Iniboot included in TOS 4.1.30, you don't need to update the patch and iniboot again.

@DiscoSi
The information you provided is basically consistent with the actual operation of current TOS.

Thanks!
You may want to mention that in related threads to avoid confusion in the future, and also report Patches/Initboot versioning in upcoming Release Notes.
Thanks or consideration.
