Tool to give details about used and unused memory in viirtual memory

P: 26
Hi All,

Recently I have got an interesting problem related to virtual memory usage. Our application is crashing in the customer site when the user tried to process a report with thousands of data.
Narrowing down the problem, I found that our application is using windows API VirtualAlloc( ) to allocate memory for processing. When it could not find enough space in the virtual memory for processing it creashes and gives error. I also found that our application is reserving large area in virtual memory but not using it efficiently. Is there any tool to monotor virtual memory usage and give details about the virtual memory used and unused area?

Have a look at the tools from SysInternals. There may be something there for you.
