[mrtg] monitoring memory usage of linux boxes

I'd like to monitor used memory on some linux boxes, I'm currently using
the following syntax:

Target[srv-java_mem]: memTotalReal.0&memTotalSwap.0:bleu at www.ebi-fr.com
- memAvailReal.0&memAvailSwap.0:bleu at www.ebi-fr.com

(on a single line).

Unfortunately, I get what seems to be not really accurate values, when I
compare them with a "top" command on the servers.
Sometimes MRTG reports a good value, sometimes it's off by 100-150MB,
sometimes it's completely rong: tells about 15-25Mo...

Maybe my syntax for the substratcion is bad ? I could only find
additions examples.

Thanks you !

REst of the config for the target:
MaxBytes1[srv-java_mem]: 776728
MaxBytes2[srv-java_mem]: 65532
