I have a Linux VPS server provided by Fasthosts in the UK. We have only 6 wordpress sites on the server buy memory usage is 291 MB free of 1.5 GB, which I consider to be extremely high.

(By contrast I have other VPS servers that have nowhere near this memory usage with 20 similar sites on the server).

My hosting company thinks that there is something "running" that is using up memory resource, but they can't / won't investigate for me.

So I need a Linux expert who can help me track down the source of the high memory use and assist in rectifying the issue.

I can provide Plesk and Root access.
