Active: Memory that has been used more recently and usually not reclaimed unless absolutely necessary. Inactive: Memory which has been less recently used. It is more eligible to be reclaimed for other purposes Committed_AS: The amount of memory presently allocated on the system. The committed memory is a sum of all of the memory which has been allocated by processes, even if it has not been "used" by them as of yet. (...)
My question relates to the Commited_AS memory, and the part of it that is actually used/unused. My understanding is that Active memory is the part of committed memory that is actually used. However, I do not know what happens with Inactive memory; does it also include the committed but unused memory, apart from memory that has not been recently used?
