Roughly ~80 -> ~100 processes, low load average, but only 4668K of Free Mem. Is this normal? My understanding is that Inact memory is basically the same as free memory.... so why doesn't FBSD clear that out? If a proc needed say, 10GB of memory at this point, does it ask the system to clear some Inact memory and then wait for that to be done?
