    How can I remove the cached size of RAM for VPS?

    Hi. I've purchased one VPS with 4GB RAM

    When I check its usage, I found that I have only 1.5 GB of free size.

    And the rest of it is cached size

    So How can I remove the cached size of this VPS?

    Some people say me its impossible to remove the cached size of RAM

    Is this right?

    This is totally normal.  The memory is not listed as free but it is available for use by applications that request it.  The operating system is caching memory in an effort to be as efficient as possible.  Check out the following link, I think it is a good explanation of memory caching and available memory:
