This was the original post it got introduced in [WayBack] The Delphi Geek: Finding Memory Allocation Bottlenecks with FastMM4 and merged into the main repository.

FastMM introduction: [WayBack] The New Memory Manager In BDS 2006 – by Pierre le Riche.

It also taught me about [WayBack] RAMDisk – Software that Accelerates, Protects, Optimizes – Server Memory Products & Services – Dataram.
