Perhaps I am asking something very obvious but I did not find any 
guidelines to run clients with accumulo scripts and still i am not clear 
how ACCUMULO_OTHER_OPTS which are set on server affects clients. I do 
not run clients with scripts instead I just map the hostnames of the 
servers in client's /etc/hosts file and use the API. Is it not preferred 
? Then what is the correct procedure to start clients.

And I think Linux systems tries to cache as much data as they can so 
there probably a lot of file descriptors and other unused objects which 
OS thinks are useful or may be required for future reference? But I 
really don't know exactly. Please through some light on this. This would 
be a great help.
