All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.
Is there any command that by using I can clean the cache in RHEL?
I used this command:
sync; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
but it didn’t work.
How to solve :
I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.
Depending on what you want to do you can use 1,2 or 3
Writing to this will cause the kernel to drop clean caches, dentries and
inodes from memory, causing that memory to become free.
To free pagecache:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
To free dentries and inodes:
echo 2 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
To free pagecache, dentries and inodes:
echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
As this is a non-destructive operation and dirty objects are not freeable, the
user should run ‘sync’ first.
sync; echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches.
Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
