I'm looking for a very simple logging program that will log ram usage over say 18 hours. I don't mind if it logs every minute or just records the peak usage. I don't need it to record any extra details like which process is using what and so on, I don't need CPU or network usage stats, just how much ram is used. Any Ideas?

@NoviceUserFrance None of those programs seem to do what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a program that looks at how much ram is being used and write that to a text file every minute, nothing more. –  APasz Aug 15 '14 at 23:43
