Memsnap.exe: Memory Profiling Tool
This command-line tool takes a snapshot of the memory resources being consumed by all running processes and writes this information to a log file.
MemSnap logs system memory usage to a log file with the default name of Memsnap.log. However, any file name can be chosen by specifying it at the command line when starting the tool.
There is no corresponding user interface for this tool.
Memory leaks occur when programs allocate memory but neglect to free it when the memory is no longer being used.
For more information about memory management and memory leaks, search the Microsoft Developer Network.
The following are the system requirements for MemSnap:
Windows XP Professional or Windows Server 2003
