RamMap By Microsoft Makes List  Of All Files Currently In Windows RAM (2)

Have you ever wondered exactly how Windows is assigning physical memory, how much file data is cached in RAM, or how much RAM is used by the kernel and device drivers? RAMMap makes answering those questions easy. RAMMap is an advanced physical memory usage analysis utility for Windows Vista and higher. It presents usage information in different ways on its several different tab. This includes the list of system fonts that are loaded in memory, the dynamic link libraries or the system drivers. The free system tool RamMap can be used to display those information, and a lot more. The program is compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7, and not Windows XP. It is also compatible with the server variants from Windows Server 2008 on. Use RAMMap to gain understanding of the way Windows manages memory, to analyze application memory usage, or to answer specific questions about how RAM is being allocated. RAMMap’s refresh feature enables you to update the display and it includes support for saving and loading memory snapshots. When you start the program for the first time you will see a tab based interface that displays information about processes, use counts, physical pages and a file summary.

Here is a short description of each tab:

  • Use Counts: usage summary by type and paging list
  • Processes: process working set sizes
  • Priority Summary: prioritized standby list sizes
  • Physical Pages: per-page use for all physical memory
  • Physical Ranges: physical memory addresses
  • File Summary: file data in RAM by file
  • File Details: individual physical pages by file

The file summary tab displays the file data that is currently in the memory. When you switch to that tab you will see a large list of files with their paths, file names and memory information. You can click on a header to sort the table. A click on path for instance sorts by file path which is helpful if you are looking for specific files in Ram. You could also look at the biggest files in RAM with a click on Total, Standby or Active.
