Topic: cached overload ...

hello everyone ..

   I have the following problem in the use of memory resources of the server, the cached goes up to 2 GB of usage, and it is concluded that there is a memory overhead.

  how can control this problem?

[root@amadeus ~]# free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          3262       2385        877          0        202       1533   <--    1.5 gb
-/+ buffers/cache:        649       2613
Swap:         1027          0       1027

I don't think that's a problem, if I remember correctly Linux will free memory from the cache as soon as it is needed...

free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          3877       3477        399          0        274       2072
