Memory usage is constantly between 50-60%, is this a concern?


My message board is constantly using 50-60% of the Ram, regardless of if there is 30 or 200 people online.

Is this a concern for if a spike happens? Or is it like windows where the server will store stuff in RAM if it has space and nothing is running and always use this much?

This is what is using up the RAM:

apache2 59.24 %

mysqld 27.85 %

fail2ban-server 1.81 %

snapd 1.47 %

do-agent 1.11 %

systemd 0.50 %

systemd-journal 0.50 %
