crontab to email when buffers/cache memory reached a defined value

I have a Linux server running CentOS with 2GB RAM. I am searching in google and also in this forum but could not find any luck yet. I am searching the way that we can receive notification by system to a specified email when the memory reached a specified value we defined.

Is there any tool or sort of shell script we set via crontab every minute to check that?
