    full memory

    just upgraded to ubuntu 804 and now everynow and then for about ten minutes or so, for no imparticular reason that i can see, my hard drive starts spinning and my RAM usage goes to full. i presume the hard drive is spinning to use the swap partition but cant be sure.

    any ideas would be most welcome. thanks,
    James

    The next time that happens, run gnome-terminal and enter the command "top". That should show you which processes are using up system resources.
