Help! Linux memory problem
I've just installed RHL 8 into an IBM xSeries 225 machine
using the default installation. I am able to install it. The
problem is, whenever I use commands to write data into
the harddisk or tape drive, I can see that the memory
utilization increases proportional to the size of the data.
That is, if I tar or cp a file the size of 1GB, the memory
usage will increase by 1GB! And, the memory usage
remained even after the tar or cp process is over.
It seems to me that the data is some how stored
into the memory as well as on the harddisk. And,
I couldn't find any way to free the memory.
I've tried to install it on another system, but the
result is the same.
