Memory staying in cached status


Hi there --

I am running Fedora Core 5 that was hardened Bastille Linux on a system with 1.5 GB of RAM. The system functions as an e-mail server running Sendmail along with MailScanner, SpamAssassin, and ClamAV.

I have noticed over time, via the free -m command, that the amount of cached RAM is going up. This results in the amount of free memory going down to where there is almost nothing left. The end result has been the system to periodically hanging, which forces me to reboot the server.

What can I do to correct this problem? Thanks.
