How to Use RamMap to Empty System Working Set

In this post I want to introduce¬†RamMap¬†by Microsoft. It’s a free tool you can use to show metafile usage and find which RAM areas are used by which applications.

The screen looks like this:

rammap

It’s an interesting tool when you run into high memory usage and don’t exactly know why this is happening.

In my case I found Windows was using high amounts of metafile memory and it effectively clogged the server. I then use Empty->System working set to clear it and free RAM goes back to normal.

The function is available here:
