Hi all
I'm running FC2 with the latest 2.6.9-1.6_FC2smp Kernel, but it seems
that it doesn't release buffer and  cached memory so that memory used
under sar -r shows memory used is always 90% +, is this something new
or a bug?

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          1009        977         32          0        222        610
-/+ buffers/cache:        144        865
Swap:         2000          0       2000

Many thanks,
