Node.js | os.freemem() Method
  • Last Updated : 23 Jan, 2020

The os.freemem() method is an inbuilt application programming interface of the os module which is used to get the amount of free system memory.

Syntax:

os.freemem()

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameters.

Return Value: This method returns an integer value that specifies the amount of free system memory in bytes.

Below examples illustrate the use of os.freemem() method in Node.js:



Example 1:




// Node.js program to demonstrate the   
// os.freemem() method
  
// Allocating os module
const os = require('os');
  
// Printing os.freemem() value
console.log(os.freemem());

Output:

4158910464

Example 2:




// Node.js program to demonstrate the   
// os.freemem() method
  
// Allocating os module
const os = require('os');
  
// Printing os.freemem() value
var free_memory = os.freemem();
var free_mem_in_kb = free_memory/1024;
var free_mem_in_mb = free_mem_in_kb/1024;
var free_mem_in_gb = free_mem_in_mb/1024;
   
free_mem_in_kb = Math.floor(free_mem_in_kb);
free_mem_in_mb = Math.floor(free_mem_in_mb);
free_mem_in_gb = Math.floor(free_mem_in_gb);
   
free_mem_in_mb = free_mem_in_mb%1024;
free_mem_in_kb = free_mem_in_kb%1024;
free_memory = free_memory%1024;
  
console.log("Free memory: " + free_mem_in_gb + "GB "
      + free_mem_in_mb + "MB " + free_mem_in_kb
      + "KB and " + free_memory + "Bytes");

Output:

Free memory: 4GB 110MB 88KB and 0Bytes

Note: The above program will compile and run by using the node index.js command.
