Release unused memory in Ubuntu

sometime we think that RAM is filled with running processes. But actually more over its cached by the processes which has finished its execution. We can release this cache RAM using superuser command.

first check the status of RAM by this command:

“free”

"echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches"

Now again check RAM using free command. You will observe too much RAM is released.
