Hi,

I query free -m,

On my server it is,

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:         32190       8758      23431          0        742       2156

And on my pc,

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          1002        986         16          0        132        255


On the server, the above figure is after I exited the R. It seems that there are still alot free MB available if I am not wrong.
