Property Value

Type: System.Int64

The amount of memory, in bytes, allocated in the virtual memory paging file for the associated process.

Exception Condition
PlatformNotSupportedException

The platform is Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me), which does not support this property.

The value returned by this property represents the current size of memory in the virtual memory paging file used by the process, in bytes. The operating system uses the virtual memory paging file in conjunction with physical memory to manage the virtual address space for each process. When pageable memory is not in use, it can be transferred to the virtual memory paging file on disk. To obtain the size of memory used by the operating system for the process, use the PagedSystemMemorySize64 property.

This property can be used to monitor memory usage on computers with 32-bit processors or 64-bit processors. The property value is equivalent to the Page File Bytes performance counter for the process.

Win98WinMe

This property is not supported on Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me).

The following code example starts an instance of the Notepad application, and then retrieves and displays various properties of the associated process. The example detects when the process exits, and displays its exit code and peak memory statistics.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
