(Procexp revision 265)
The physical memory history just displays one block filled with some kind of red. It would be more useful if "Available", "Buffers", "Cache" etc. had their own colors so the user has optical feedback of how the memory is used. On well-configured Linux systems "Used" (what is actually displayed red) should be 90%+ since the kernel will use all available RAM for I/O caching.
To make clear (to the user) which color represents which memory usage belongs to which color you could just add colors to the labels in the box "Physical Memory (K)".
And you should btw explain what "K" means in this context.
