One thing I fight with on Linux is RAM and SWAP that is being used in 10ths of GBs, yet tools like htop don't show any processes using that much memory (even when run as super user). I know that disk reads are cached, this is not the problem here though. What is eating up my RAM? Why I cannot identify processes that allocated this memory? How can I reclaim it without rebooting my system?
