Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static bool MonitoringIsEnabled { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if monitoring is enabled; otherwise false.


The current process attempted to assign the value false to this property.

This static property (Shared property in Visual Basic) controls CPU and memory monitoring of all the application domains in the process.

If you attempt to set this property to false, a ArgumentException exception is thrown, even if the current value of the property is false.

Once monitoring is enabled, you can use the MonitoringSurvivedMemorySize, MonitoringSurvivedProcessMemorySize, MonitoringTotalAllocatedMemorySize, and MonitoringTotalProcessorTime instance properties to monitor CPU and memory use of individual application domains.
