    My dedicated server is getting an huge RAM usage.
    I'm hosting 15 wordpress based sites and 2 based on Magento.
    I'm using Memcached on few of them.
    I need to free caches every day to drop the memory usage.
    It runs latest version of ISPConfig, Debian Wheezy and it's a SYS-IP-5 dedicated server from Ovh

    I attach a screenshot of top command.
    Any suggestion? What could cause the problem?
    Thank you.

    High ram usage is absolutely fine as long as you dont have high swap usage and swap usage in your screenshot is 0. The Linux kernel is cachng data, so it uses all available ram, thats nothing bad and no need to free any caches, the Linux kernel is able to handle that on its own. And memcache is an in memory cache, so this software alone will use lots of ram to speed up your server
