I am not seeing this one. How are you getting memory used from "the system" when you check that way?

For mine, I get the appropriate numbers. See:

# vmstat 
 kthr      memory            page            disk          faults      cpu
 r b w   swap  free  re  mf pi po fr de sr m0 m1 m4 m5   in   sy   cs us sy id
 0 0 0 31227688 25971592 142 521 10 6 6 0 0 14 10 12 1 2239 4198 2471 11  2 87

..."free" is about 25GB.

   Memory              Used       Total  Percentage
green Physical           7035M      32768M         21%

...looks about right to me (the data is slightly different ages so forgive the small inconsistency).

Subject: [Xymon] Memory Monitor Solaris 10 Client

Dear Xymon-Team,

we have mentioned a problem with our memory monitors for solaris
clients. the data shown on the page of every monitor for solaris
are the mirrored like it is - let me explain.
We have installed munin and xymon on a solaris 10 machine, so that we
can compare the data from both tools.
If munin and the system says the current memory used is 48% --> xymon
shows 52%.
If munin and the system shows that 15% are currently used - xymon shows
85%... and so on.
We currently use Xymon server 4.3.10 and solaris client 4.3.7.

Do you have any idea, what we can do, is it a bug - maybe fixed in newer
client versions, or do we have to configure
something for the correct data?
