    Is cPanel known for incorrectly reporting memory usage?

    This is what I have right now....

    [email protected] [~]# free -m
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 256 83 172 0 0 0
    -/+ buffers/cache: 83 172
    Swap: 0 0 0

    Then in cPanel:
    Memory Used 44.3 %

    I make 83MB of 256MB to be only 32.4%

    Is this just cPanel being... well just cPanel... or is it how the VPS is configured... i.e. only allowing cPanel/WHM to use about 187MB?

    Just wondering :D
