Commit charge doesn't match addition
Posted on 2004-09-27
What exactly is commit charge? I always assumed it was a sort of "total memory usage". However, if I add up all the programs "Mem Usage" I get about 60mb worth of stuff in memory. My commit charge is over 200.
I also saw a "Virtual-Memory" tab, and found that a lot of my programs have large chunks of virtual memory. Is there any way to tell XP to go ahead and actually GIVE them that memory? I'm tierd of having 256mb, and only having XP fill 70-80ish with programs, and paging out the rest to disk.
