Need help reading poolmon due - event id 2019
Posted on 2006-07-20
Approx. every 2 weeks into the uptime of my server I start to get memory leaks. I noticed the problem shortly after installing a new app so I feel that most likely it is causing the memory leaks. I'm running poolmon to watch which tags are paged and which are non-paged. I really don't know what I'm looking at and need help reading the data that is being displayed within poolmon. As I understand I can do a search in the \windows\system32\drivers folder for *.sys. This will return a list of 3rd party tags, or, possible tags for some of these are false positives. I've contacted the manufacturer of the software that I just recently installed to see if they have a .sys file in the \windows\system32\drivers folder. This will let me know which tag to look for.
How do I know which should be paged, and what should be is non-paged? I have the tags sorted from largest to smallest. And I know how to toggle between paged and non-pages columns. Should a certain tag only get so large before releasing the memory?! I just don't know what to look for.
