RAM usage constantly rising

  • Device & model you are using: Raspberry Pi 2

  • What dashboard are you using: Web, Android

  • Please describe the bug / issue as detailed as possible:
    Hello all,
    I find out that my RAM usage is constantly rising, The Pi literally is doing nothing, nothing is scheduled, no web services or samba, just sitting on my balcony and doing nothing. Im waiting for my flowerpots. Please how it is possible, that the ram usage is constantly rising?


Can you write top in the console and send us back the output?


Thanks for quick reply :slight_smile:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ free -h
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 862M 445M 416M 43M 106M 211M
-/+ buffers/cache: 128M 734M
Swap: 99M 0B 99M


Python3 service is using the most of the ram I think. This does not mean that the constantly growing RAM is from it…


pls what else I can check or monitor?


Can you run free -m to check how much ram you have ?


here you go


Hi guys,

I saw this thread, and after some investigation with another user we found that the Raspberry Pi agent RAM fixes that I thought were released on April 4, did not actually make it into that release. They are the ones mentioned in these release notes: Release Notes April 4, 2017

We’re planning another push for early next week (Monday, assuming no delays) where we’ll be sure that they are included this time. So hang tight – there will be RaspPi RAM usage improvements coming very soon! :slight_smile:
