Memory Profiler Plugin

Swap memory is like pushing your car downhill when it’s all out of gas. Sure you’ll keep going, but just not as fast. Oh, and use too much, and you could be in trouble.

In our experience, when a significant amount of swap memory is used, our web application performance slows down dramatically. Swap memory is just a lot slower than physical memory.

Eric Lindvall has created a nice plugin that profiles a system’s memory usage, returning the following information:
  • Swap Total
  • Swap Used
  • % Swap Used
  • Memory Total
  • Memory Used
  • % Memory Used
