Solarwinds is reporting that teh 6506-E Version 12.2(18)SXF9 is running at 92%. Below is the output of show memory:

System Memory: 524288K total, 252632K used, 271656K free, 1000K kernel reserved.

Am I missing something here?

use "show memory free" for an accurate listing of inuse memory on the switch. If the memory is really all being used you can use "show mem summ" or " show proc mem" to find the runaway proscess.

Most likely though the Solarwinds tool is reporting the usage of the I/O memory in use or misreporting. Check with the vendor.
