Is there any tool that can shows how much memory is used in each DRAM? Like 40% is used in DRAM1, 20% is used in DRAM2.

The concept is similar to PageFileUsageMonitor. Thanks.

It doesn't work like that. To the OS, RAM is RAM. 2x2GB chips is no different than 4x1GB chips. Plus, why does it matter to know which physical chip is storing a certain amount of data? I'm not sure how that information would even be useful.

If you're curious about RAM usage, the Windows 7 task manager really provides a good overview of how much RAM you have, how much is allocated, how much is cache, and how much is available vs. actually free.

Well said, the Resource Monitor provides even more detail. – Sathya Sep 14 '10 at 12:49
