[Openstack] [swift] Issue of cache eating up most of memory

Hi Stackers,

We have memory issue when running COSbench tool against Swift. The memory
was consumed rapidly by Swift.
I carefully checked the memory info and found most of the memory was
consumed by page cache and inode cache. It will
fail the server to accept any request.  I know it can be released by using
the command of echo 3 > /proc/sys/drop_caches.
But does anybody have better solution to address this issue?
