Hi all,

Have the backup server working, but one thing which seems odd, the amount of memory it's using while there is no running tasks.
the server has 32gb in total and it's using 16.82gb. It seems high to me with no jobs running. Rebooted and memory was around 1-2Gb (would need to reboot again to give the exact usage) anyone have any thoughts on this?

In case you are using ZFS, the ARC will by default consume up to 50% of your hosts RAM for caching (check arc_summary in cli).
