Are you talking about something like this:
Mem: 1543980K av, 1538248K used, 5732K free, 266768K shrd, 36064K buff
Swap: 2048208K av, 194532K used, 1853676K free 802612K cached
Where I'm only showing 5732k free, but 802612k cached? That's normal.
The linux kernel is just using the spare memory for file caching until
something tries to allocate a big chunk of memory, then it will give it
back. That's normal operation.
Or is it something else?
