Subjectwhat is using memory?
I have been trying to figure out what is using my memory

My box has


From boot I see

924 kernel
8224 reserved (initrd ramdisk?)
1488 hash tables (dentry, inode, mount, buffer, page, tcp)

from lsmod I caculate

876 for loaded modules

from proc/slabinfo

11992 for all slabs

from proc/meminfo

17140 buffer
123696 cache
32303 free

leaving unaccounted


This is about 38% of my memory, and only about 46% is pageable
Is it possible to figure out what is using this?

This is with 2.4.6-pre2 with Rik's page_launder_improvements patch,
lvm beta7 and some reieserfs patches applied, after about 12 hours
of uptime.
