Azureus to much memory consume


Im using debian and azureus for a while, lately i updated to azureus
I noticed that it use 1.2GB of RAM ?!? i think that its azureus... if i look at status

Physical memory 97% 50.23 MB 1.43 GB 1.48 GB
- Kernel + applications 20% 309.40 MB
- Buffers 6% 90.71 MB
- Cached 70% 1.04 GB

How can i find out what actualy use that cached memory and how to restrict it to half of it... so i have some memory left for another apps..

You don't want to restrict it. Unused memory is wasted memory. The kernel caches recently used files in ram. It an application needs more ram the kernel will give it up. You should think of cached ram as free ram as well.
