    Pardon my ignorance, but what is included the Active, Wired and inactive slices of the Ram pie chart. (Generally speaking) ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1385592558.573517.jpg

    assuming that dev defines it like Apple does, wired is ram used by essential OS processes. active ram is being used by currently running processes. inactive is ram that is holding data used by processes that are no longer running, but can be retrieved quickly if the user opens them again. Free is unused ram.
