Memory Usage monitor
The Memory Usage monitor uses a local API call or SNMP communication to test the amount of physical memory (RAM) available on:
- The local machine
- A remote SNMP-enabled computer running a supported Microsoft Windows operating system
- A remote SNMP-enabled computer running a Unix-based operating system such as Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, and so on
- An SNMP-enabled device
The monitor effectively ensures that:
- Memory leaks are detected before performance is affected.
- The minimum amount of physical memory required by the system remains available.
- The total amount of physical memory allotted to the server is not exceeded.
The Memory Usage monitor wizard help you configure a Memory Usage monitor with the least amount of initial input by testing all the parameters you enter along the way to make sure the monitor operates as expected in a production environment. If you prefer greater control over the process, clone an existing Memory Usage monitor and make any required configuration changes.
|Avail||Indicates the amount of physical memory available on the system in megabytes (MB) and percentage (%).|
|avail-avg||indicates the average amount of physical memory on the system based on the tests performed during the length of time specified in the Sample Size field.|
