How can I change the file buffer cache setting (need to lower it)? There must be a way thought the proc system, I just need to find out where it is at.

Just out of curiosity:

What makes you want to reduce buffers/caching?
They are allocated dynamically, and Linux in general
makes very sensible choices as to what to use memory

This is for a performance tests. I was noticing some of my tests were obsure in their translations and I want to be able to simulate clients with lower memory.
