I want to know if kill the delete process , can help to clean the memory cache sometimes we get from lsof many deleted files so does killing them can give more available memory ?
lsof | grep delete lsof: WARNING: can't stat() fuse.gvfsd-fuse file system /run/user/42/gvfs Output information may be incomplete. cupsd 1619 root 10r REG 253,0 2979 38250477 /etc/passwd+ (deleted) gnome-set 5731 gdm 14r REG 253,0 65536 51102558 /etc/pki/nssdb/cert8.db;5c644c01 (deleted) gnome-set 5731 gdm 16r REG 253,0 16384 51197440 /etc/pki/nssdb/key3.db;5c644c01 (deleted) pool 5731 5795 gdm 14r REG 253,0 65536 51102558 /etc/pki/nssdb/cert8.db;5c644c01 (deleted) kill 1619
we are worried if process that are delete are consume memory
also we can see the follwing:
lsof | grep deleted | wc -l 3421
