How to monitor memory usage for an 2 application


can anyone give a detailed guide to monitoring the memory used (AND MOST IMPORTANTLY RELEASED) by an 2 application?

We have visual studio for software developers. Iif anyone else can explain how to use specific tools, etc that will be great.

basically we need to find if an application is leaking memory. As far as we can tell all user code is correct in that any user called objects are closed, disposed of and set to nothing as applicable.

I think this is the link you want:

Take particular attention to the "Where Did My Memory Go?" section

You should be able to monitor the total memory usage using the task monitor.

The performance monitor will also allow you to set process specific monitoring. Select the appropriate memory fields you wish to monitor, and run this overnight with some load on your app
