Debugging Tools

We're looking for a tool which will allow us to track memory consumption by applications running in a Win98 environment.  We want to identify, per process, memory utilization (and anything else we can for that matter, such as disk, cpu, etc.).

These are not custom applications, so we can't use anything that requires modifying sources.

Does anyone know of a tool, which supports this kind of debugging.

You also might try and search on www.download.com / www.winfiles.com maybe there is some good freeware you can use.

I own both Norton SystemWorks and Ontrack's SystemSuite.  Ontrack's Suite is far far ahead of Nortons and it should give you all the information you listed and then some.

sysmon doesn't provide squat for data.  At best it could be said to characterize the high level utilization of your system, but tell you nothing about applications.

We're looking for a capability similar to the Win NT perfmon type of thing for application debugging purposes.

I've got Norton System works, but that doesn't seem to do it either.  For instance, I've got the System Information - Memory tab open as I'm typing this.  The memory utilization seems to be perhaps physical memory, but nothing on virtual or CPU consumption or which DLLs it's loaded, etc.

Does OnTrack provide this type of system and application analysis?  Would it allow me to track down memory leakage in libraries or heavy disk usabe by applications?

Ontrack includes System Monitors for:  CPU usage, threads, memory load, % of C free, memory % free, virtual memory % free, and VMM/cpg Swap.  You can set the monitors as meters showing current usage or as moving monitors showing a history of levels over time.  It is also possible to set alarm levels so you get warned when usage approaches levels you specify.  You would probably be best off going to Ontrack's website -  http://www.ontrack.com - and telling them what your specific needs are and asking whether all of your needs or which of your needs are met by the suite.  I haven't completely examined everything in the suite but what I have looket thoroughly I've been pleased with.  My needs, however, are currently only for my personal home computer.  Ontrack has been pretty responsive when I've made inquiries.  Good luck finding something that meets your needs, I just can't say for sure that Ontrack's SystemSuite will do the trick, but they should be able to tell you.

Thanks for the pointer.  I've ordered a copy of OnTrack's software, and will probably pick up the McAfee tools as well to compare (now I have all the suites).

If anyone else sees this and can identify any process/application analyzer packages in a Win98 (and/or Win NT) environment, I would appreciate the pointers.  I've currently got the Desaware and NuMega stuff, but these are both code invasive.  We need something not so invasive.
