normies?
Not sure how to show current usage via a query but you could do something fancy with "total server memory" performance counters

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

Guys, is this that hard?  I have a SQL Server configured to use a max of 256mb.  I would like to be able to know if it us running out of headroom.  Is there an alert, talk to me?

You want a query or an alert?
Enterprise manager - sql agent... alerts.
SQL server performance condition alert - > choose your memory option.
Alert if reaches X level.
Response = alert operator.

Not sure if this falls into normie(?) category or I think I cans but looks like I'm the only one offering anything at the moment

Actually that was rather cool-lala, but I already thought of that.  Questioni is what is the alert calculation, how does it come up with the magic numbero?  Come on GuruFuruMannuTiiiiii, do the VooDoo you do so well BroHammer.  I got a stinking feeling it is an undocumented dbcc thang, but I'll be damned if I can find it.  
Hit me!

You provide the magic numbero when you set up the alert.
Alert if counter rises above XXXKbs
