    Is there any reason why "free" isn't cutting it for you, as far as I know it's the best way to view size and usage of memory. But, if you have a proc file system mounted you can also try
    cat /proc/swaps
    to view where the swap is and it's size and
    cat /proc/meminfo
    for all the info you'll ever need on your memory.
