Hi all,

Im trying to understand poolmon output to determine any memory leak for lsass.exe since lsass.exe memory usage keeps increasing.
From doing some research, my understanding is i have to examine the Diff (allocations minus frees) and Bytes (number of bytes allocated minus number of bytes freed) values for each tag, and note any that continually increase.

When i checked the result, why it does have negative value? (see the attached). What does it mean?

Thank you
