about the virtual bytes in performance monitor logged RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a question about the virtual bytes logged in performance monitor,

    whether the virtual bytes means the virtual address that a process can use and already used:

      1. bytes that process already allocate by new/alloc

      2. bytes can satisfy process's memory request by new/alloc

    In my issue, the working set bytes, private bytes are both around 200M Bytes,  sometime even close to 70MB

    but the virtual bytes is steady around 800M Bytes. 

    Does that means there were memory leaks in my program?

  • Hi ,

    I think your issue should be raised in the Windows Performance Toolkit (WPT) v5. I believe they will know more information of this issue than us, and I will move this one to that forum.

    Thanks for your understanding,

    Best regards,
