free command to monitor memory

The command to display the current memory status is “free”.
Let’s run it.

free

Total memory 1GB, you can see that 300MB is used.
With the free command only, you can’t keep monitoring the memory status.

Combine with watch command

The watch command is generally used as follows.

watch -n “time span” “command to repeat”

For example, you want to run free command each one second.

watch -n 1 free

Watching for a while, the value of “used” and “free” will change.
If you stop the process, type “ctrl + c”.

The -d flag to color the changed place is also useful.

watch -n 1 -d free



making a function.

Open the .bash_profile and write next code.

function lf(){
  watch -n 1 -d free
}

Save it, reload .bash_profile.

source ~/.bash_profile

Run lf command, you can monitor memory.

lf



Conclusion

It can be used in various situations of the server.
