    Can I see how much RAM the Touchpad is currently using?

    Thanks!

    roundruler: the homebrew app Govnah shows your total memory usage but I haven't found anything that shows a process by process breakdown (like top).

    Use Govnah,
    you can get it download in preware

    There is JSTop that you can download from Preware. It shows as an emulator window, but seems to work just fine.

    I do have Govnah installed since day 1 on all three of my Touchpads.

    Under "Memory/Swap" it says 720 / 0 MB. What does this mean? Is it available memory
    or used memory? The 720 figure sometimes varies between 702 to 750....

    Thanks!

    I show 694mb and am wondering if it is used space or total available. Touchpad should have 1gb of ram.

    In Govnah, the first value is used PHYSICAL MEMORY.

    The second value is used VIRTUAL MEMORY

    PHYSICAL MEMORY = RAM

    VIRTUAL MEMORY = Swap drive

    so, with:

    720 / 0 MB

    You are using 720mb of available 1024 mb RAM, and 0 mb virtual/swap memory.

    Virtual/Swap memory only is used when you run out of RAM.

    720mb may sound like a lot of used RAM but Linux works to use up almost all of your available memory all the time, so apps load/run quicker.

    It doesnt work like Windows, so unless your device is sluggish, using up a lot of RAM in linux is a good thing, its keeping many often use tasks in RAM so they are still there when you need them.
