Sys::MemInfo - query the total free and used physical memory


  use Sys::MemInfo qw(totalmem freemem totalswap);

  print "total memory: ".(&totalmem / 1024)."\n";
  print "free memory:  ".(&freemem / 1024)."\n";

  print "total swap: ".(&totalswap / 1024)."\n";
  print "free swap:  ".(Sys::MemInfo::get("freeswap") / 1024)."\n";


Sys::MemInfo return the total amount of free and used physical memory in bytes in totalmem and freemem variables.

Total amount of free and user swap memory are alse returned in totalswap and freeswap variables.

This module has been tested on Linux 3.13.0, UnixWare 7.1.2, AIX5, OpenBSD 3.8, 
NetBSD 2.0.2, FreBSD 5.4, HPUX11, Solaris 9, Tru64 5.1, Irix 6.5, Mac OS X 10.2 darwin and Windows XP.

It should work on FreeBSD 4 and Windows 9X/ME/NT/200X/Vista.

=head1 METHODS

=over 4

=item availkeys

Return list of all accessor keys (freemem, totalmem, etc.)  This is useful
for dumping out all known information from the object by calling get() on
all of the returned keys.

=item freemem

Returns free physical memory in bytes.

=item freeswap

Returns free swap space in bytes.

=item get

Returns the value of the passed key.

=item totalmem

Returns total physical memory size in bytes.

=item totalswap
