Probably not suffering, because of (anonymous pages) + (cached file pages)
+ (cached executable pages) < (pages managed) in your case.

But what Havard said is true.

Does changing vm.file{min,max} sysctl parameters make the response
You can use something like "sysctl -w vm.filemin=0 vm.filemax=1" as
a starter to see whether the parameters take an effect or not.
(This setting does NOT really limit the file cache less than 1%.
 the name of the "max" parameter is misguiding.)

Even if this does take an effect, it's better to update your kernel.
I'm not sure whether you'll need the sysctl change after the kernel
update or not, though.
