PoolMon Run-time Commands

To change the display while PoolMon is running, use the run-time commands. Each run-time command consists of a single keyboard character. Press the key to execute the command.

    [p] [( | )] [s] [TSSessionID] [i] [l] [e] [t] [a] [f] [d] [b] [m] [h | ?] [q | ESC]

Parameters

p
Toggles the display through nonpaged allocations, paged allocations, and both.

( or )
Toggles the display between sorting by value (allocations, free operations, and bytes) and sorting by change in value. You can use either parenthesis character. They have the same effect.

s
Toggles the display between the system pools and the Terminal Services session pools.

TSSessionID
Displays allocations from the specified Terminal Services session pool. TSSessionID represents the session ID of a Terminal Services session. It must be an integer from 0 through 9. To display all session pools or to enter session IDs greater than 9, use the i command.

i
Prompts you for the session ID of a Terminal Server session. You can respond in the following two ways:

  • To display allocations from all Terminal Services session pools, press ENTER.

  • To display allocations from a particular Terminal Services session pool, type a session ID and then press ENTER.

l
Toggles highlighting of changed lines on and off.

e
Toggles pool totals on and off. Totals appear at the bottom of the display.

t
Sorts by tag name.

a
Sorts by number of allocations. When used with a parenthesis character, the a key sorts by the change in allocations.

f
Sorts by number of free operations. When used with a parenthesis character, the f key sorts by the change in free operations.

d
Sorts by the difference between bytes allocated and bytes freed.

b
Sorts by bytes used. When used with a parenthesis character, the b key sorts by the change in bytes used.

m
Sorts by bytes-per-allocation. When used with a parenthesis character, the m key sorts by the change in bytes-per-allocations.
