In this episode of Defrag Tools, Andrew and I walk you through Sysinternals VMMap. VMMap allows you to see how the Virtual Memory of a process is being used. You can see how much is used, for what purpose it is being used, and if there has been any memory leaks. Like last week with RAMMap, we cover some Memory Management theory to understand the data in VMMap.
