Hello

I'm interested in finding out how much virtual memory is being used by some of our applications.

My understanding is that each process on a Windows 2003 Server (32bit) has 4GB virtual address space given to it, of which 2GB the process has access to and 2GB the OS has access to help run the process.

Question 1: An app can have multiple processes as we know. When we use the 'process', are we referring to processes as what we can see in Task Manager?

Question 2: Within Task Manager, I can see the memory usage for each process. I assume this is physical memory usage?

Question 3: How can I view the virtual memory usage per process?
