I don't see anything wrong in this picture. You still have free memory. Even if it didn't show free memory you would probably still be OK, because it would just be reserved for use



In that case it should be marked as inactive memory so it can be reused, that memory that was taken up by the end of the day would never be reclaimed so I was paging a lot.

That would be the job of the memory manager to decide when to do that. Memory could be kept in the non-free state for longer that it actually is needed, but still be marked internally to be available when needed.

OTOH, if you have paging, as you say, then something is wrong, true.

But I don't think that the screenshot shows something wrong.
