Win32 Physical Memory Display

M. Gallant 11/12/2001

This signed applet for IE4 browsers uses Microsoft J/Direct technology to provide direct access from Java to the Win32 kernel32.dll library function GlobalMemoryStatus() to dynamically display current RAM memory usage.

[This applet returns identical results to the Windows Task Manager/Performance tab on Win2000 systems. On Win2000, standard install of IE5.1 uses ~ 7 Mb RAM, and the MS JVM uses an additional ~ 8 Mb RAM.]
