> Anyone have a good way of dealing with this? Should I create user metric to pull in "vmstat" buff and cache values, used to subtract from used memory to get a more real picture? Seems like a dumb fix but I can't come up with any other way. I know managment won't understand that just because memory shows as 99% used all the time its really not.

You did not mention the OS platform, but I am guessing *nix. In that case, configure sar (if not already configured) - you will then not need to poll from vmstat. Depending on your OS, sar will be able to provide this information.
