You can change memory usage by changing msExchESEParamCacheSizeMax and msExchESEParamCacheSizeMin limits. I do not know how many domain and emails you have but the most of the time exchange will take everything what you have in the system and server then is very slow with other features.

By changing msExchESEParamCacheSizeMax and msExchESEParamCacheSizeMin you adjust amount of memory what you want to use for exchange. I usually left 2 Gb for system kernel and 2 Gb for system application  and what left goes for Exchange. When you have DAG you may have different situation on each server. Resource monitor gives some real time view but not telling everything.
You may use some application like
or use Monitoring High Availability and Site Resilience ps commands to see that everything is ok.
