Examples

The following code example starts an instance of the Notepad application. The example 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.

   // memory usage of the process.

Remarks

The value returned by this property represents the current size of nonpaged system memory used by the process, in bytes. System memory is the physical memory used by the operating system, and is divided into paged and nonpaged pools. Nonpaged memory allocations remain in system memory and are not paged out to the virtual memory paging file.

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 Pool Nonpaged Bytes performance counter for the process.
