This script solves the problem of excess of RAM cache that can hung or slow your Linux system.
It is written in Python

The blog entry is in Spanish, I hope Google translator can help you.

I notice this behaviour in my system too. But, when a new program starts, it uses ram and deletes some cache and only the programs that keep quiet without any use go to the swap. Deleting the cache will make the system slow when trying to access to your files.
In other words: I believe that the system is faster with the default parameters.

Liberating excesive use of RAM cache that freezes system

A downloadable Python script freecache.py automatically drops the excess of cache RAM that can freeze your desktop system.

it happens to me when I use Qbittorrent and browsw Flash videos/games or banners with Chromium.

But after browsing I founded a manual solution, that now has been implemented by this blog I do follow.

It is in spanish, but you can use google translator.
