Unhappy Linux is eating to much memory!!!


I'd like to ask our server (linux 7.3) and samba 2.27 why it is using to much memory (available = 2 gig, CPU = XEON 2.4mhz). When memory reached less than 20mb Free (from 2 gig to 20mb) it slow down its response. anyone have this problem? My client about 600 and processes average to 400. Thank you

There is no need to triple post here, please don't litter!
The memory managment in linux is a different beast than the one implemented in the other OS's. Linux makes use of your memory, and most of it buffered anyway. What do you mean by "slow down its response"? Have you check your memory for memory leaks, the best checker is I just can imagine how long it will run for 2G of memory.
