Title: Terminal Server
Post by: workmam on May 18, 2016, 06:29:58 AM
Can CleanMem be used on a Windows Terminal Server (2008) to clean memory for the users logged in?
Thanks

- Are you able to pull up Resource Monitor (memory tab) on that Server software ? Then you can follow how Cleanmem works. I assume it's only Windows software with some additional features ............

I looked at the task manager in the memory section. The software in question was running for 8 users. The memory use ranged from 100megs to 650megs.
I quit and relaunch the software and it starts at 18megs. Looks like it grows the longer is runs. I'll install CleanMem on Monday and keep monitoring that.
Thanks.

The terminal server results are VERY good so far today.

- Two interesting links:

Look at the 1st picture from
http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-use-windows-vistas-resource-monitor.html

Subtract "Free" & "Cached" from "Total". That's roughly (!!) the amount of memory that's "In Use" See the picture in the next weblink, under the header "Learn How the Memory is Used by Windows".

http://www.digitalcitizen.life/how-use-resource-monitor-windows-7

In Windows 7 "Resource Monitor" provides (much) more details regarding memory usage but it's about the same system as on your system. "In Use" is memory used by programs and "Standby" or "Cached" is the system cache.
CLEANMEM reduces the amount of "In Use" memory and pushes that to the "Standby" (="Cached") memory. And from there on Windows' memory management will take control over the memory. And it's safe to use. CLEANMEM uses a function/feature that's build into Windows itself to do the trick.

- Do you and other users experience an improvement of performance ?

No real performance changes, but we are not getting the out of memory errors that we were getting.
Thanks for your help. I'll review the links you attached next week.
