    You need to be more specific about what you want to do and what you want to know. That's a pretty ambiguous post.

    What exactly are you asking for?

    Here is an answer about cache memory if you were wondering: http://searchstorage.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid5_gci211730,00.html

    Cache is basically a temporary bank of recent information (for the most part). It's size and speed varies, but as you can tell, having information stored in cache helps because it's easier/faster to access redundant information for example (which is why when you open certain programs, it's usually faster opening the program the second time around and so on until the cache is cleared).

    However, about the memory distribution, I am unclear about what you are talking about.
