 +====== Meaning of available, free and buffered memory ======
 +
 +**Issue:** What is the difference of total available memory, free and buffered shown in LuCi status overview (or ''​free''​ on the command line)?
 +
 +**Solution:​**
 +
 +  * Total = free + buffered
 +  * Buffered = memory that is **temporarily** in use to handle I/O operations
 +  * Free = really free memory
