I am using Windows Server 2003 Performance Counter tool to monitor the memory consumed by my process.
The interested terms are working set, virtual bytes and private bytes. My questions are,
1. If I want to watch the real physical memory consumed by current process, which one should I monitor?
2. If I want to watch the physical memory + swap file consumed by current process, which one should I monitor?
3. Any more clear description of what these terms mean? I read the help from Performance Counter tool, but still confused which one(s) identifies the real used physical memory, and which one(s) identifies the real used physical memory + page swap file, and which one(s) identifies the required memory (may not be really allocated either in physical memory or in swap page file).
If there are any related learning resource about the concepts, it is appreciated if you could recommend some. :-)
thanks in advance,
