I have a smaller cPanel server for our development clients only. I recently noticed a couple accounts using an insane amount of RAM, and thought it was an issue with the WordPress installs, but after much digging I found that the LVE stats include the disk cache. (https://cloudlinux.zendesk.com/hc/e...or-Users-When-no-Actual-Processes-are-Running)

My question here is if I have generous resource limits (2-3GB RAM) for individual LVEs, will the disk cache be cleared up based on the total server RAM usage? My understanding is that CL will clean up an individual LVE's disk cache if it hits its max quota, but what is the behavior if all accounts are using high amounts of RAM within the LVE limit for the disk cache and the server's physical memory gets low?
