How much memory does a .NET application use?Posted 3647 days ago on March 10, 2005
The memory usage of .NET applications is a frequent discussion topic. It usually starts when a developer looks in Task Manager and sees a huge figure in the "Mem usage" column. But is Task Manager the best place to evaluate your application's memory requirements? In this short article I've had a go at explaining why Task Manager is misleading, and how to get a more useful measurement. I'll just add this: however you twist it, .NET (and Java) applications do consume a lot of memory.
