The memory widget provides a visual representation of RAM and swap usage over time.
The legend displays the current usage in terms of percentage and actual usage in binary units (KiB, MiB, GiB, etc.). If the total RAM or swap available is 0, then it is automatically hidden from the legend and graph.
One can also adjust the displayed time range through either the keyboard or mouse, with a range of 30s to 600s.
Note that key bindings are generally case-sensitive.
|+||Zoom in on chart (decrease time range)|
|-||Zoom out on chart (increase time range)|
|Scroll||Scrolling up or down zooms in or out of the graph respectively|
Memory usage is calculated using the following formula based on values from
/proc/meminfo (based on htop's implementation):
MemTotal - MemFree - Buffers - (Cached + SReclaimable - Shmem)
You can find more info on
/proc/meminfo and its fields here.
