MemProfiler

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This helpful utility tracks process details over time, but suffers from poor programmer choices that make it less than appealing for novices.

MemProfiler's spreadsheet-style interface, which is barely larger than a standard dialog-box, can't be resized,and it lists every current process. The list is in process ID order with no method to sort. The program includes no help file or wizard, but most experienced users will figure out its functions. To track processes, click the check box next to the processes you want to track. Then, all you need to do is enter a time interval and observation time. MemProfiler churns away before executing its first problem. It is programmed to open Microsoft Excel to display its stored data, although its saved as a CSV file.

The data file contains basic information for each checked process: name, memory usage and select system data; paged pool size, non-paged pool size, pagefile size, commit, handles and threads. MemProfiler's publisher gives no information on the saved data, instead leaving users' to interpret the numbers on their own.

Deceptively listed as freeware, in actuality it is a limited demo that only displays the first 25 data points of each session. Without a help file, or interpretations about the saved data, MemProfiler is not novice friendly. However, experienced users might find the data helpful when tracking down memory issues.
