Memory Utilization

In addition to utilization, the data sources send information about memory capacity and usage to npc. The Memory Utilization metric is an average utilization statistic derived from the percentage of available memory in use at a given moment, averaged over the reporting interval.

High rates of memory utilization may indicate that processes are paging instruction sets into and out of virtual memory. Such paging leads to slower memory read times, and may require the CPU to be interrupted to manage the paging process. The result is decreased performance for the associated application processes.
In addition, a steady increase in memory utilization over time may indicate a 'memory leak' condition. Such a condition exists where memory is allocated by processes as they start, but is not being released as the processes end. Memory leaks degrade device performance over time. Typically, the device becomes unresponsive when memory is no longer available.
