Unmanged memory question

Postby twdi » Wed Feb 02, 2011 9:12 am

When comparing snapshots with memory profiles 7, the Summary screen shows 20,52MB unmanged memory in the .NET and unmanaged memory section. Can somebody explain me what this is, and if I can prevent it?

If you only have 20MB unmanaged memory, this might not be a problem because some unmanaged memory is used by the .NET runtime itself.

Please see the help topic 'Checking unmanaged memory usage' for more information: http://www.red-gate.com/supportcenter/C ... 286225.htm

Thanks for your fast reply.
I shall read the article. Thanks!

The reason I've asked, is that the software needs to run on a Windows terminal or citrix server so the memory usages should be as small as possible
