Do you actually see an increase in the amount of memory that is
allocated to your processes? If you only see a decrease in "free" memory
along with an increase in "cache" or "buffer" memory, this is nothing to
worry about. Operating systems usually try to use as much otherwise
unused memory as possible for the file system cache. This memory will
automatically be freed up by the OS if it is required for other
