Hello

I am developing with VB6. My application runs in an endless loop and looks
for new eamils via pop3 every 5 minutes. I am using the EAGetMail component.

At start time my application uses ~ 300 handles (shown in the task manager)
Unfortunately after some days the number of handles has increased up to
30000 and i don't know why .........

Question:
How can I read all process info like shown in task manager (memory, threads, handles, etc.)
and write this information to my log file.

I have googled for more than 1 hour without having anything usefull found...

Thx in advance

Sounds like you are creating a new thread with every iteration and not cleaning up afterwards.  According to my math, your process is creating 288 threads a day (86400/300 = 288).  You will need to post your database or code for further analysis.

Thx for your fast reply.

Posting all my code is not possible, the application is communicating with
many 3rd party components, a mail component i mentioned , another
one is a large control center system component and so on....

I want to know how I can log the process information (memory, handles, etc....)
on some certain places in my code. Something like the process class ....

As I mentioned my development framework is VB6

Thx

You don't need to post all your code, just the part related to email.
