I just ran a system monitor and it tells me that the system is using 38% of the memory for programs and 50% for cache.

Are these numbers normal? Do I want half my RAM used as cache? Is this best for the fastest program execution?

Moved from Kernel & Hardware to Duplicate Threads.
See Linux Memory Management or 'Why is there no free RAM?'
