Strange value in memory category "for Driver WS" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    If I am correct, the value is measured in kilobytes. It is more than 294,000,000, which means more than 294GB.

    How is this value calculated or where is it stored?

    The computer is acting very slowly.

    Thanks for any information leading to the arrest of the suspect. 😁

  • Can you post an image of the value you are referring to?? I'm not familiar with that..WS could stand for Working Set, but I've never seen that value probably.. just to clarify your question..

    Thanks!

  • Are you talking about the Memory tab in System Information?

    On this computer it is reported as 8,664.

    What is your OS and hardware specification?

  • I'm pretty sure that there are better tool when it goes to analyze memory..

    specifically Rammap:

    And PoolMon

    See this old thread on how to use Poolmon: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/ee796714-e971-4176-bbd0-c30d5c912efd/memory-leak-on-windows-server-2008-r2?forum=windowstroubleshooting

    The value is in the physical memory section of the memory tab of the process explorer.

    This is really annoying. I cannot post an image and who knows when I will get the verification done. This is a stupid procedure to go through.

    Yes, that is correct. I do have the uptodate Windows 10 Pro 64bit version running on an 6-core AMD processor with 16GB main memory.
