Memory usage - just doesn't add up


  • This has been a mystery to me for a while.

    This is a 64-bit Windows 2008 R2 server, that has 4GB of memory. Task Manager is showing that 94% of the physical memory is in use.  This doesn't make sense since there is only a few web sites running (totalling about 1/2GB of memory usage)

    Both task manager and even Process Explorer are not adding up.  If I add up all the processes (unless my math is horrible which is possible, I'm estimating this in my head) but I'm just not seeing 4GB of processes running....

    (just a few items didn't make the screenshot, nothing significant)

    Is my math bad or is this just not adding up to almost 4GB?
