What does this include?

I find that, with an 8GB system, most will be used but mostly as a cache
to avoid hitting the disk.  The output of "free" will give you that
breakdown.  "htop" is also good for visualising the difference between
actual use and the cache.

The key question is whether you end up swapping or not.  If not, then
might as well use the memory as much as you can.
