// Include os module and create its object
var os = require('os');
  
// return the cpu architecture

// It returns the amount of free system memory in bytes
console.log("Free memory: " + os.freemem());
  
// It return total amount of system memory in bytes
console.log("Total memory: " + os.totalmem());
