I noticed that this issue (at least partially) occurs when I wake up my PC from sleep. https://forum.manjaro.org/t/accumulating-lots-of-not-easily-reclaimable-shared-and-buff-cache-after-waking-up-from-sleep/64150
Example (I have 16GB of ram):
I have 10GB ram used (htop) and 7.1GB is in buff/cache (free -h).
Then I run a VM in Virtualbox. The system get's very unresponsive (about 99.5% ram usage). When I kill the VM, buff/cache is still ~7GB. Can you explain that?
@unfa I have the same problem, I have browser and couple of terminal emulators opened and the RAM usage is about 11 GB out of my 16 GB's. I've used a C program to allocate memory and it went to 5 GB allocated before it was killed, after that still 10.5 GB used so it's not a disk cache problem? I'm using Manjaro KDE. (I also noticed that after I wake up my PC from sleep the ram usage grows by ~3 GB and it doesn't get freed no matter what I do) The htop also doesn't show anything suspicious.
One thing I fight with on Linux is RAM and SWAP that is being used in 10ths of GBs, yet tools like htop don't show any processes using that much memory (even when run as super user). I know that disk reads are cached, this is not the problem here though. What is eating up my RAM? Why I cannot identify processes that allocated this memory? How can I reclaim it without rebooting my system?

Wow, the Garuda Linux community really can't take any critcism...
I come to help them make their distro better and they close my topic after mocking me and refusing to discuss anything with merit.
Way to go.
Maybe I should make a video about this? :D

KDE has been accepted into Google Summer of Code (@gsoc)! Once more, we will be mentoring students and helping them contribute features, solutions and new software to KDE with Google's sponsorship.
We already have an ideas page up where you can see what kind of projects you can participate with and suggest new ones:
