  • In the perfromance Monitor MMC Snapin [1] you can add new performance counters. Select Process->privates bytes and in the lower panel select the outlook process and click ok. Now you monitor the private bytes usage of Outlook.

  • Dear,

    I think that private bytes (private memory used by the program) is that I mean because I need to monitor a consumed memory by a specific application.
