Would you say its time to increase the RAM on this lil machine or is it okay? Could you please explain this output?

free -m -s 5             
                       total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:                   496         439        57       0         20          250
-/+ buffers/cache:                 167        328
Swap:                  511         5          506

Thanks,
M

Sorry just found out that the figure 328 is my free RAM in MB which is great as its a 512MB server.

So for any newbies to Linux, like myself, run the command free -m. The figure located in the free column next to -/+ buffers/cache is the available RAM your server has!

In this case I have 328MB unused RAM - perfect for this particular webserver!
