I have applications configured on RHEL 5.5 on VMware machine.
Recently migrated from Physical to Vmware
- Problem is coming that now application used all RAM fast and then application crashed (Only application) and to avoid that either we need to restart the application or echo 3 to drop caches.
This is really painful to do .
What i checked that when the memory utilizatio reached 99% also then too it doesnt release the Cached memory for applications .
Please help why its happening and how to resolve this?
current swappiness value is : 60
Total RAM : 16 GB
Swap : 1 GB ( It always free - never used)
