This is a good question but the information shows there is lots of memory available. You should be monitoring your memory usage though.
My favorite system monitor is
conky and memory display is part of it:
Total memory line shows 2.5 GiB out of 7.4 GiB is being used.
Detailed memory line shows:
Web Contentis using 7% of memory. This is a Firefox subprogram.
Firefoxitself is using 7% of memory
ffmpegis using 3% of memory. This is the
peekmaking the video we are watching.
Conky is highly configurable and everyone’s desktop looks different. You can google
conky and get 787 thousand hits.
