Yes it can. There is no reason to clear the vm cache manually unless you
are testing cache-related code paths. The kernel will automatically
reclaim cache memory for program memory should the need arise, and uses
the otherwise idle/free memory for disk cache. Clearing cache will only
degrade the performance of your machine while the cached material is
re-read from disk.
