When a computer has a platform deployed to it you can usually monitor the RAM available by simply looking at the RAM field for the platform in question.  An alternative approach would be to use a performance counter to get a view into the available RAM. The script below is an example of how this can be done.

The sample script above can be copied from below if desired:


dim ramCounter as System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter;
ramCounter = new System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter("Memory", "Available MBytes");
LogMessage( "Ram Available: " + ramCounter.NextValue()+"MB");
