Bug report: OS memory is counting cached memory as being used by OS

I noticed that the amount of "OS memory" used was being maxed out in APP, but on my system it was showing plenty of available memory.

It looks like the calculation for OS memory is calculated actual memory used + cached memory.

See attached screenshot showing OS memory as full, but the system has plenty of memory available

I've noticed that once APP thinks the OS memory is used, it stops using the RAM and becomes very slow.


For debugging purposes, I'm using APP v1.082 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
