Linux dstat

dstat on my Linux box shows the following

------memory-usage-----
 used  buff  cach  free
11.7G  264M 22.3G  155G
11.7G  264M 22.3G  155G
11.7G  264M 22.3G  155G

Open in new window


What is the difference between used and cache.  

Why is cache not included in the 'used' column

What actually quilifies as a buffer in this readout

Thanks
