Returns number or error.


Queries amount of memory used.
This is to query the memory used in bytes for the current application.
On Server this would query the scripting process.
The value returned is not exactly the same as in Task Manager or Activity Monitor as this includes some shared memory for your process, which those don't count per app.

See also App.CompactMemory for Windows to reduce memory.
