The panel shows that my VPS KVM consumes all its RAM.

Problem encountered

The panel of your customer area shows a high consumption of RAM on the details of your VPS server


The RAM measurement is performed at the host level for the entire VPS KVM process and does not distinguish between real and cached memory.


It is preferable to use the free -m command which will tell you the actual consumption of your VPS :

pulseheberg@docs:~# free -m total used free shared buff/cache availableMem: 1959 229 1184 0 545 1567Swap: 1951 0 1951

In bold you can see that the RAM actually used is 229M.
