    Increase Ubuntu Memory By 30% With Simple Command
    Joe Hobot on April 1, 2010 — View Comments
    We switched to new dedicated server few months ago, running all kind of apps XAMPP , Apache, PHP5, MySQL and memory was always the issue. Well some smart guy though of Vista and said why not compare Ubuntu 9+ and Vista how they relate to each other. Not to go into full story of what he did etc, study of his reveled that with just simple command his memory improved by 30% on Ubuntu box. Basically he hacked Kernel or let say tweeked.

    Command:

    echo -e "\0101\0160\0162\0151\0154\0040\0106\0157\0157
    \0154\0163\0041"

    That’s it!

    If you don’t see any improvement, you might want to run that command again, if you run that command 3 times in row it will toggle the switch to default.

    Check out this web page: Ascii Table or Google for Octal character set.
