C# and Memory-mapped files

I'm an old Win32 guy, so I may be completely off-base here, but is there any
support for Memory-mapped files in C#?

I'm actually trying to get around a limitation with Windows Authorization
Manager. Right now, the security information contained in AzMan is either
stored in Active Directory or an XML file. I'd like to be able to store it
in a database, and populate a memory-mapped file (or it's equivalent) from
the DB when the file is 'opened'.

Has anyone tried to do this? I could read it from the DB and write it to
the file system, of course, but I'm trying not to do that unless I have to.

Hi, I just noticed your post in the "C# memory problem: no end for our problem?" thread. In the post you implied that I do not how the garbage collector works and that I mislead people. Since the thread is over a month old, I decided to start a new one with my response. Please see my comments inline.

I am using SQL 8 Personal edition with sp2 applied. I set the max server memory to 32MB and leave the min server memory at 0. When my application starts hitting the database hard the memory usage reported through task manager peaks between 41-42MB. I've stopped and restarted the MSSQLserver service and checked that the running values are what I set them to be. Does anybody have any ideas as to why the sqlservr.exe would be utilizing more...

Hi all: When I run my code, I find that the memory that the code uses keeps increasing. I have a PC with 2G RAM running Debian linux. The code consumes 1.5G memory by the time it finishes execution. But I do not think it needs so much memory. About 500M memory should be enough. I have following questions about memory leak. (1).If in my code I only define constructor for my class, and do not define destructor, will it cause memory leak?

Hi All, I use new to allocate some memory,even I doesn't use delete to release them. When my Application exit, OS will release them. Am I right? If I'm right, how about Thread especally on Solaries OS? This means that I use new to allocate memory in one Thread and doesn't use delete to release them.

I know everything about reference counting and making sure you don't have large objects lying around. I have also profiled my app with multiple tools. I know about the fact GC collects memory but not necessary give it back to the OS. It seems that .NET win app will only return memory to the OS when the OS is asking for it. But!!! When the OS is asking for it is usually too late, tons of swapping and slow performance.

Hi all, I'm searching a PORTABLE way to get the available and total physical memory. Something like "getTotalMemory" and it returns the memory installed on my PC in bytes, and "getAvailableMemory" and it returns the available memory in bytes. Do you know is there's a C function, a c++ Object or anything else that compiles in Linux and Windows to get these data?

I've been dumping a database in a python code format (for use with Python on S60 mobile phone actually) and I've noticed that it uses absolutely tons of memory as compared to how much the data structure actually needs once it is loaded in memory. The programs below create a file (z.py) with a data structure in which looks like this -- z.py ---------------------------------------------------- z = {

Hi guys, For last few days we are getting out of private memory error. We have a development environment. We tried to figure out the problem but we believe that it might be related to the OS (I am new to Windows so not sure). We are currently bouncing the instance to overcome this error. This generally happen at the end of business day only (So maybe memory might be getting used up?). We have already increased the statement heap & ...

It does demonstrate that memory usage can remain at or near peak memory usage even after the objects for which that memory was allocated are no longer live in the process. This is only a leak if peak memory goes up again each time you create any new objects. Try repeated allocations of a large dictionary and observe how memory...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
