Gets the maximum amount of memory in the virtual memory paging file used by the associated process.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
[<MonitoringDescriptionAttribute("ProcessPeakPagedMemorySize")>] [<ComVisibleAttribute(false)>] member PeakPagedMemorySize64 : int64 with get
Property ValueType: System.Int64
The maximum amount of memory, in bytes, allocated in the virtual memory paging file for the associated process since it was started.
The platform is Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me), which does not support this property.
The value returned by this property value represents the maximum size of memory in the virtual memory paging file used by the process since it started. 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.
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 Peak performance counter for the process.
Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition Platform Note: This property is not supported on Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me).
