HA memory confusion

I am getting inconsistent memory readings for Home Assistant OS.

Does anyone have any explanation for this?

Logging in with SSH and top command gives me these values
According to these values, I am out of memory.

Then I login with SSH to host system using port 22222
using top command gives me

and the glances addon values are below

Why are they inconsistent?

The answer is, you’re not out of memory, this article goes into it in more depth, but the TL/DR is that buff and cached are parts of memory that can be freed up if something needs them.

This site gives a slightly less technical description of how it works.
