Description:I have several boxes running (pretty much only) asterisk. After several days we sometimes get more echo, dropouts... This begins to occur when the free memory has been used up and it is starting to hit swap. We are running RH kernel 2.4.20-28.9. Of course this may not be an asterisk problem at all - but as asterisk is about the only thing I have running on these boxes one might assume that the  memory is gradually getting filled with files it may have accessed. Please let me know if there is a command to free the cached files on a linux box that I can run periodically some other tweak to take care of this.

Thanks,   John

There is no such command.

This is a hardware issue.... put more ram in the box and see if that helps.  This is how linux works... I have a box with 300+ days of uptime that runs asterisk for weeks on end without 1 crash or glitch.
