Clearing the cache from memory

August 18, 2010 mohancheema 0

Linux has a supposedly good memory management feature that will use up any “extra” RAM you have to cache stuff. This section of the memory being used is supposed to be freely available to be taken over by any other process that actually needs it, but unfortunately some Linux distros think that cache memory is too important to move over for anything else that actually needs it.
