Default memory management

Hi Guys

in a pc you have memory, (RAM) and your Hard Disk (Storage)

in the Pulse you seem to only have a hard disk, but its called memory..

Does the pulse have RAM (or equivalent) and a way to monitor it? or even see it, like task manager

Regards

Rich

Dont worry, i found it under settings/applications/manage applications/menu for running.

I do however still have a question about RAM, does Android run within a RAM space, and how big is it and how can i tell when its getting a bit full which means i need to start removing some running apps?

Thanks Again

I think that lists all the programs that are installed not running and some of those are in ROM. You can see the running ones if you hold the power off button until a menu appears and select Task List at the bottom. Better yet download TasKiller from the market that shows running programs and available Memory. Mine seems to hover around 24MB available.

From memory the RAM for App storage started of at 70MB on my phone. Settings\ SD card & phone storage - now reports that as down to 50MB. I am not sure yet how that interacts with the available program running memory TasKiller shows.

Cheers.

android manages opened applications which are running in the background, so officialy you shouldn't care about that. which means that it closes the applications when the system needs more memory. however, most android users are not very satisfied with how it does its things because sometimes it leaves too many processes running whih causes slugishness in everyday performance. that's why it is recomended to use some kind of task manager, so you can take control of the whole pocedure. there are a lot of useful apps for that in android market, just search for "task manager" and you'll see that you have some free alternatives. i use advanced task killer and it does it's job very well.

as i know, the pulse has 192 mb of RAM, which equals with g1's specifications. if no apps which require many RAM are running in the background, you usually have about 30 mb of free RAM available.

after factory reset you get about 60 megabytes of free space to install apps on your device. if you run out of storage space, the system notifies you by placing an icon on the notification bar. this usually happens when there are only 15 megabytes left.

Question Memory management

Hello Guyz,

Greetings!

I have a question in continuation to this memory management discussion. Dont we have VM or Paging space that can used once the built-in memory runs out in Android OS technology. I am just trying to corelating my question with typical PC OS which has Virtual Memory in case the RAM is hitting the thresholds.

Thanks in advance.
