Senior Technical Fellow


Have you ever wondered if Windows Pagefile settings should be changed or how they actually work? Have you ever wondered what the values in Task Manager actually mean—like Paged Pool, Working Set, Free memory and so on? Have you ever wondered how to really know if you need more memory to solve a problem or are you just facing a bad behaving application? These are examples of questions that will be answered during this session by Sami Laiho.

You will learn:

  • How Windows memory management works
  • How to spot memory bottlenecks and memory leaking applications
  • How to adjust the pagefile settings and what should or shouldn't do
