Gnu/Linux desktops-windows managers RAM ShoWDowN

Postby Deb-fan » 2019-07-04 10:16

There's been a tad bit of which OS/distro and what desktop environment vs windows managers use what, how much RAM, going around the forums. So if anybody feels like sharing their stats, this thread is as good a place as any eh ? Some ground rules to keep it fair to everyone.

If you so desire provide the following information/stats:
* The operating system(s) used and version thereof + 32 or 64bit, Debian, Arch, Bunsenlabs gnu/Linux etc ?
* Just to be anal is the install VM-virtual machine or bare metal (installed on a disk)?
* Which desktop environment(s) or windows manager(s) and the version numbers are involved ?
* Finally at bootup/start up memory stats (ie: via the "free -m" command, ps_mem etc) ? Also realise some nixers would rather swallow their tongue than reboot, so if that's you, how about just shutting everything but the bare minimum down for this. Though if so inclined share your systems uptime too.

Since this my hair brained thread, only right I should start.

#1. Bare-metal Debian 9.8 32bit netinstall, openbox v 3.6.1-4, memory at bootup = 85mbs-ram according to the free -m command. While ps_mem is reporting 103.8mbs.

Note: Though ps_mem also tells me the terminal I'm using to run these commands in is using 17mbs of that, so it's 103.8 - 17 = 86.8mbs. Yep ... I'm anal. :)

#2. Bare-metal Debian 9.7 64bit netinstall, with openbox 3.6.1-4, memory at bootup = 117mbs-ram free -m, whereas ps_mem says 120.4mbs - 25.8 (for the pesky terminal again.) comes out to 94.6mbs.

Well that's my stats folks and welcome to the gnu/Linux OS/desktop/windows manager memory SHOWDOWN !!! :)

It boots to ~497MB but the terminal to run free takes 30 something MB. System was installed a couple of years ago and used to boot to ~400MB but I've added a few startups like Conky and KDEConnect.

On the same machine in a fairly fresh Stretch install with KDE Plasma 5.12.7 from NeptuneOS, it boots to about 355MB RAM which is almost the same as MX with Xfce uses. It amuses me when I read about KDE being bloated as that is history. Compare it to reports of current Gnome using 1,000MB or more.
I can also understand why some like to use a plain window manager instead of a DE, but my days of constant tweaking systems are over and for me a saving of a couple hundred MB is not worth losing all the nice Plasma 5 functionality.

^ New rule if you have 6 million gigs of RAM and 3 ssd's, don't bother posting (jealous.) :) Thanks for posting. BTW people the ground rules aren't set in stone. Main thing is so we all can get some real life interesting resource stats for this verses that.

@Sunrat have toyed with getting an ssd for this old thing, they're getting cheap nowadays but it'd be like trying to put a Ferrari engine in a Volkswagen. ;)

This machine is over 10 years old with 4GB RAM. I promise not to post results from my newer i5/16GB one. :wink:

@Sunrat have toyed with getting an ssd for this old thing, they're getting cheap nowadays but it'd be like trying to put a Ferrari engine in a Volkswagen. ;)

I put the SSD in maybe 7 years ago and this old faithful system has run nicely ever since. I don't think I'd be using it still if it only had spinny disks (it still has 2 of them for data, SSDs were frightfully expensive in 2011). Totally worth the upgrade. It wouldn't be like putting a Ferrari engine in a VW, but more like trading in your VW for a Ferrari for the cost of a tank of petrol.

^ Lmao, nice. Don't think the buses could handle the throughput. Doubt the ssd would ever live up to potential due to one bottleneck or other but at $40 summin bucks, if/when the rust drive dies, might try it anyway. Will definitely repair if possible, rather than trash.

Thanks GaryR but new, new rule. Maybe "free -h" command might be the way to go. :)

This install is from when Wheezy was testing, I am guessing early 2013. Upgraded to Stretch.

I can use amdgpu kernel module instead of radeon (SI card), but I don't game a lot on these hot, summer days.
EDIT: The measuremnt is taken while Chromium was open with 2 tabs. So, take away some 600-700 MB of RAM (in this case, it's about 900 MB total on idle+terminal).

I exceed the brag limit, but the stretch 9.8 hypervisor boots to a about 525MB with xfce, then lives 45-60 days @ 18-26GB loaded, until a courtesy reboot or upgrade.

No worries the spec limit was only kidding. Thanks for sharing stats. Not looking like there's going to be much of a sample size though. Arghhh.
