    is the RAM that is unmapped being used?


    Hi,
    generally, in a 32 bit system. if the RAM is of 4GB. only 3.28GB is mapped into virtual address space and the rest of the address space is used for register mapping.
    I wanted to know weather the RAM that is not mapped into virtual space is being used or left unused.
    Please reply.

    Hi, Thanks for replying.

    meminfo reads the information from DDR Controller and prints the information.
    But, My question is weather the virtual/logical mapping exists for entire RAM

    I don't think this is really a linux question, per se. You may want to check wikipedia.
