SystemEDGE not reporting accurate memory utilization within CAPM
CA Virtual Assurance for IM
RHEL server is generating false memory utilization alert as per CAPM even after enabling buffers + cache as part of SystemEDGE free memory calculation.
Release : 12.9
Component : SEAGTU - SYSTEMEDGE AGENT LINUX / UNIX
The patch is
which is applicable to SystemEDGE 5.9 on RHEL7.x.
MemAvailable value was new metric introduced in RHEL7 within cat /proc/meminfo output.
This new patch does not
use buffers + cached for freemem calculation so you do not want to enable this.
Instead It will only look at MemAvailable for the MemInUse calculation:
MemTotal - MemAvailable = MemInUse.
This above calculation is a more accurate representation of true memory usage in RHEL7.
