I/O vs Proc memory

Hello all,

Where can I find a document describing what are proc and I/O memory are used for? (when using 'show memory' command)

Re: I/O vs Proc memory

Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) contains two types of memory:

- Primary, main, or processor memory, which is reserved for the CPU to execute Cisco IOS software and to hold the running configuration and routing tables.

- Shared, packet, or I/O memory, which buffers data transmitted or received by the router's network interfaces.

For explanation of the individual processes:
