Description

This is Part 2 of a two-part session. If you want to know the difference between System Committed memory and Process Committed memory, have ever wondered what all those memory numbers shown by Task Manager really mean, or want to gain insight into the memory-related impact of a process, then this talk is for you. Using various memory analysis tools, including Process Explorer, VMMap, RAMMap and others, to highlight concepts throughout, the presentation starts with an overview of virtual memory management, describing types of process address space memory and how they impact system virtual memory. It then dives into physical memory management, discussing how Windows manages process-working sets, how it keeps track of physical memory, and how memory moves between different states.
