Question Finding the total memory being consumed currently by a specific application

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I have an application running on the blackberry handheld. Is it possible to find out the total memory being consumed currently by that application (RAM, flash etc.).

I know for sure that it is possible to find out the total memory being consumed currently by the handheld (using the 'Memory Statistics' or using the APIs provided) but am not sure if the same is possible for a specific application.

Memory stats for an application can only be done from within the development environment.

Pretty simple (and off the top of my head):

1 - Set a breakpoint in your app and run it

2 - When at breakpoint, click "View -> Memory Statistics" to see your memory statistics.

3 - Click Refresh.

The Snapshot button allows to create a snapshot and compare memory used between 2 breakpoints.

Aric,

I already knew how to view the memory stats but my question is, if I put a breakpoint in my application and then view memory stats (step 2 of your reply) will I see the memory stats of my application or will I be seeing the combined memory stats of the whole handheld (I mean memory being consumed by all background threads and currently active applications)
