That test was using the free value on the first line, which matches
MemFree in /proc/meminfo. I chose that because I knew that after the
cache drop the only cache remaining was needed by the processes that
were active. Looking at -/+ buffers/cache for this test would not have
been useful, since the cached pages are effectively unreleasable despite
any memory demand. I did look at the values, but there was no point
reporting them. The value you report seems normal.

I've no idea why cerebro chose to run. Under what conditions is it run?
