Memory profiling for .NET developers

Was always told that using task manager was a bad idea for determining if you app had a memory leak. Partly due to the private bytes including allocated & unused bytes.
Is this the case?

Task Manager displays only the 'Private working set' memory counter, which is only accurate immediately after a garbage collection. That's probably why you were told this.
For a comparison of the different memory counters available, please see the 'Comparing Memory Counters' section of this page: http://www.red-gate.com/supportcenter/c ... p_counters

For what it's worth, IMHO ; there is nothing whatsoever wrong with task manager for detecting leaks.
It just won't tell you *why* there's a leak- that's where ANTS Memory Profiler comes in
