Hi Alden,

When executing "show meminfo" command, can you also check the Buffers and Cached memory? You should also see them in the output of the above command.

The Buffers and Cached Memory can also be considered as Free Memory and both can be reclaimed anytime memory becomes low.

I feel above could be the reason why you are seeing High memory usage. I will try to see if I can find the article which is written on this topic.

Regards,
Rahul
