In this episode of Defrag Tools, Andrew and I walk you through Sysinternals RAMMap. RAMMap allows you to see how the Physical Memory (RAM) on the computer is being used. You can see how much RAM there is, for what purpose it is being used, and if there has been any memory pressure (not enough memory). We also cover a lot of Memory Management theory to understand the data in RAMMap.
