Ram usage by Application
I need to implement the Memory consumption meter for my tests and I wonder why my code shows me a different results than Windows Task Manager.
My code (Python):
def ram_usage(var_name): memory_usage = Sys.MemUsage Log.Message("Total memory usage:" + str(memory_usage) + "%") app_memory_usage = Sys.Process("MyApp").MemUsage Log.Message("App memory usage:" + str(arena_memory_usage) + "kBytes") Project.Variables.VariableByName[var_name] = app_memory_usage
Should I use another methods to obtain RAM consumption ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Both Task Manager and Sys.MemUsage provide pretty rough figures.
If you need to better monitor your tested application I would suggest to consider performance counters: https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/testing-with/advanced/monitoring-performance/index.h...
