free -m
root@localhost ~]# free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          1010        349        661          0         27        212
-/+ buffers/cache:        109        901
Swap:         2047          0       2047


1.I want to know What's the purpose of swap area ..
SWAP never used in my system always showing used space is 0.

2. how can calculate ram used % here ..?

>> how the formula applied here >>

3. Quote:
212++27 = 239
349 -239= 110
110+901 =1011 ...[confused]
349 ,109 how it was calculated here ..
i asking little bit explanation 239+110= 349

1. Maybe a little search on the web or on the documentation will answer that.
2. Myabe 100*used/total?
3. "i asking little bit explanation 239+110= 349":
from right to left: 9+0=9, 3+1=4, 2+1=3, so 239+110=349, this is an easy case of addition, there are more complex ones when you have to report tenth on the upper level but this is for your year work class.

If you want a one sentence answer:
It is the third line that matters, ignore the rest.

@ Michel;

I am not asking this ..
from right to left: 9+0=9, 3+1=4, 2+1=3, so 239+110=349, this is an easy case of addition,

IMO, measuring RAM usage by Oracle is not precise on any *UNX system
[oracle@localhost ~]$ free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        909120     820600      88520          0      14992     557404
-/+ buffers/cache:     248204     660916
Swap:      1735012         24    1734988

above is from my system; which is perfectly acceptable to me.
From what you posted only about 1/3 total RAM on your system is being used.
>Performance team is saying DB utilizing high memory.
They are wrong or misguided.
