Top 10 Reasons
- to buy a Pilot
|"What is taking up so
much memory ???"
RamHog displays all the
databases installed on your
Pilot in Size order! Each line shows the Database
number of bytes in use, & the percentage of
it occupies. Scroll through the list with the
Now you can see what is hogging up all your Ram!
Displayed at the bottom of the screen is the
Total Ram in
bytes, the Free Ram in bytes and what percentage
memory is Free. The Free Ram percent gets smaller
the Pilot gets full.
The Statistics screen displays what type of
are taking up the most memory. Apps, DOC files,
Hacks, & J-File databases are summarized.
If you like RamHog, please
add reviews at Eurocool !
Requires OS v.2 or OS v.3.0 - will not work on OS v.1,
sorry. -In other words, you must have a PalmPilot
Personal, Professional, or Palm III to use Ram Hog. The
older Pilot 1000 or Pilot 5000 cannot run RamHog unless
you have upgraded the memory board and are running OS v.2
12K of free memory on the Pilot is required to install
Ram Hog 2.0.
RamHog has not been tested on OS versions higher than 3.0
! or with memory capacities larger than 4MB.
Please do not send e-mail telling me it does not work on
your Palm Vx, Palm VII, etc.
- There are newer programs available that may obsolete
Tested on Pilots with 512k, 1 Mb, and the 3Mb Super Pilot
memory board. - RamHog will work with different memory
card sizes & analyzes up to 200 applications &
databases installed on the Pilot. That should be enough,
even for those 3Mb Super Pilot people!
Percentage column does not add up to 100%. - This is
because only the 10 largest databases are displayed and
not every database on the Pilot. Also, some other
'System' type data takes away from the total usable
memory and I have no info on how that works so cannot
account for it in the program. However, the numbers
displayed are accurate in that: The Size column shows the
number of bytes used by each database & the % column
shows what percentage of used Ram used by each database.
Ram Hog analyzes all databases that the user has control
over & can delete if desired.
Numbers vary slightly from the Memory application. - This
is mostly because RamHog is showing numbers in bytes, and
the Memory app shows them in K. One K is not 1,000 bytes,
it is 1,024 bytes...
Statistics window would send user back 10
databases in the list - Fixed.
Increased maximum number of databases supported
from 200 to 400.
Minor cosmetic changes.
||In Response to
You can now scroll through all the applications
instead of displaying just the top 10 largest.
Added the Statistics screen which displays which
type of applications are taking up the most
memory. Apps, DOC files Hacks, & J-File
databases are summarized.
Jazzed up the screen appearance.
||Beta 2 release.
Fixed a problem that crashed some Pilots.
