Hi All,
As we are getting issue related to Memory/Cache utilization in our Linux 32 bit server. It always cross the thresold value(90%),
Memory Utilization keep growing.

When trying to identify the memory utilization through top, it never show me any huge memory utilzation.

To minimize the Memory/Cache Utilization ... i am using below command.

sync; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

and it helps me a alot to minimize the Memory/Cache utilization.

Can you please help me to understand the concept for memory/cache utlization & cleanup machanisum for the same.
