Thanks, but that cannot be used to determine how much memory Oracle is

Please see my previous reply on this.

        Does anyone have a fairly accurate method for determining
        how much memory is actually being used on a Linux box?

        The linux in question is RedHat Enterprise Server 4.

...yes, free(1):

[root@tmr6s14 ~]# free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers
Mem:      32752464    1904580   30847884          0      65444
-/+ buffers/cache:     315692   32436772
Swap:      2040244          0    2040244 rephrased the question after posting to the oaktable, phrased
this way took a lot less typing to answer :)
