We see cached memory growing on constant base, even if there are no
connections to database.
We have some tables that are truncated and reloaded with updated data on
regular basis (3,4 days).
It seems like postgres or the operating system (linux) is keeping in
cache that old data even if it has been deleted.
We're searching a way to free that memory without shutting down pgsql.
Thank you for your help,
