top - 16:54:06 up  1:44,  2 users,  load average: 0.41, 0.20, 0.09
Tasks: 151 total,   3 running, 148 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
Cpu(s): 12.1%us,  6.7%sy, 14.8%ni, 39.1%id, 26.8%wa,  0.2%hi,  0.3%si,  0.0%st

Swap:  2031608k total,        0k used,  2031608k free,   265412k cached

The two "total" amounts, shown immediately above, are the total
available amounts of memory.  How they're being used is written
alongside.
