The slabtop statistic header is tracking how many bytes of slabs are being used and it not a measure of physical memory. The Slab field in the /proc/meminfo file is tracking information about used slab physical memory.
slabtop(1) was inspired by Martin Blighs perl script, vmtop. The procps package is maintained by Albert Cahalan <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
