Memory allocation and disk thrashing.
Posted on 1998-01-08
I refer to a previous question regarding Global alloc et al.
I've get a program that receives data from host at 2k a time.
It eventually saves the data in paradox table.
The guy who wrote it (a contracter long gone) does many, many, many mallocs as he is converting the data for paradox etc...
So 600 transactions, converting to some 3000-10000 records, and allocation say 25 bytes for each field ...
Could the thrashing I am getting on the Win 95 machine running 24Mb, be attributed to what ever it was you have been talking about?
