Ahh you meant 200M (not 200k) of memory free, in which case thats
probably okay.  If you do get down to 200k and don't start using swap
then suspect a problem.

Even so I'm surprised you are not using any swap.  What OS are you on?
(if Linux which kernel).  Whats the uptime?  Not that I think this is
really likely to be the problem, I'm just nosey!
