There are different issues tracking complaints about virtual_memory() on Linux reporting numbers which are different than the ones reported by free cmdline utility:

This ticket aims at fixing that so that psutil and "free" report the exact same stats and promote "free" as the standard reference for psutil.
Right now the differing namedtuple values are free, used and available memory stats.

#887: match 'available' column of 'free'; also calculate 'cached' me…
…m the same way free does (includes reclaimable mem)
