Re: [hobbit] Display Cached Memory

OK, but you could do a custom test that would include physical, actual,
swapped and cached all in one lump.  Yes, that reinvents part of the wheel,
but you can do it with Xymon as it currently stands.  You wouldn't need to
wait on someone patching Xymon to include cached memory.
