hi
Are you looking for memory being used by SQL or t-sql to find what various programs  are using on the server?
For the memory that SQL is using, use Task Managaer on the server. Log onto the server, right click the task bar at the bottoom and choose 'Task Manager'.

Thanks

You can also use perfomance monitor on the server to collect SQL memory useage over a period of time at set intervals. e.g Check SQL memory usegae every 10 mins for the next 48hrs.

Dynamic views and performance counters is what you should start of.

When I executed DBCC Memorystatus, the results under buffer counts is as follow (attached image):
Committed is equal to target . Please explain what does this mean?

This is normal, common situation. It means your memory is stable. Commited being larger than target indicate memory problem - not in your case ;)
