Description

Over time, users tend to ask how they discover how much free RAM, virtual memory, etc, they have.

The answer being vmstat(1M) often disappoints. I can't think of any immediate reason that a Linux-like free(1M) would be a bad idea, or problematic to implement (though making it do sensible things with zones might complicate things at least somewhat).
