Running top, is it possible for the numbers on the memory line to exceed
the available physical memory?
I'm talking about active, inactive, wired, exec, file and free.
Of these, if I just sum active, inactive, file and free on one of my
machines, it definitely exceeds the available memory I have, which
surprised me. Actually, just summing active and file results in more
memory than I physically have.
