The cache adapts dynamically to the workload i.e. as long as you have free
memory the operating system will try to cache data in there. Once you run
out of free memory the os will begin to throw out cached information to
satisfy allocation requests.

The real amount of free memory (as in "memory that can be allocated by
applications" also sometimes calles "available memoery") is free memory (as
in "completely unused memory" that is shown in e.g. top or /proc/meminfo)
plus cached memory.
