task manager say total memory is 8188 mb so thats my physical memory.
and cached memory is 5462 mb. mem usage bar is steady at 2.53 mb so
everything adds up. I am running 947687 Handles, 900 threads and 75
Processes. Everything works fine, I just never get close to using all
my ram. With every one talking about how their memory was disappearing,
I was wondering why mine never goes above 36%. Right now I am running
my online game, outlook, internet explorer and buurning a dvd. CPU is at
98% but my RAM is only at 31%.
