Memory Re-Calculation for Linux Using net-snmp

Memory Re-Calculation for Linux Using net-snmp

Monitoring memory utilization from different devices (ruckus, palo-alto etc ) running in linux platform has been quite challenging.

The system owners claiming the Physical memory utilization from solarwinds dashboard includes the cache and buffer memory.

For different systems, it should only include the USED memory.

Note that this issue is not applicable to nodes which have the Linux Agent installed. It's a limitation of agentless polling against the NET-SNMP daemon.
