Space Tab, Process Properties Dialog Box

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

Use the Space tab to examine the address space of a process. To display the Process Properties Dialog Box, move the focus to a Processes View window. Select any process node in the tree, then choose Properties from the View menu.

The following settings are available on the Space tab:

EntryDescription
Show for space marked asUse this list box to select the category of space (image, mapped, reserved, or unassigned).
Executable BytesFor the selected category, the sum of all the address space that this process is using. Executable memory is memory that can be executed by programs, but may not be read or written.
Exec-Read-Only BytesFor the selected category, the sum of all the address space in use with read-only properties that this process is using. Exec-read-only memory is memory that can be executed as well as read.
Exec-Read-Write BytesFor the selected category, the sum of all the address space in use with read-write properties that this process is using. Exec-read-write memory is memory that can be executed by programs as well as read and modified.
Exec-Write Copy BytesFor the selected category, the sum of all the address space that can be executed by programs as well as read and written. This type of protection is used when memory needs to be shared between processes. If the sharing processes only read the memory, then they will all use the same memory. If a sharing process desires write access, then a copy of this memory will be made for the process.
No-Access BytesFor the selected category, the sum of all the address space that prevents a process from using it. An access violation is generated if writing or reading is attempted.
Read-Only BytesFor the selected category, the sum of all the address space that can be executed as well as read.
Read-Write BytesFor the selected category, the sum of all the address space that allows reading and writing.
Write-Copy BytesFor the selected category, the sum of all the address space that allows memory sharing for reading but not for writing. When processes are reading this memory, they can share the same memory. However, when a sharing process wants to have read/write access to this shared memory, a copy of that memory is made for writing.
