.NET Application Memory Usage

Recommended Posts

I have discovered that my C# .NET applications, some big some small, usage up RAM between 10 MB and 20 MB. Why does it take so much or is this quite normal to see for an application? My main question is what general things can I do to lower the memory usage?

Short version: that's normal.

Mid-length version: Don't use Task Manager to try and work out how much memory your application is actually using, there are a variety of reasons why it would look like your app is using more than it really is such as the way Windows and the CLR handle memory allocation. Having said that for a .NET app to appear to be using 10-20mb in the task manager is normal and nothing to worry about.

Long version: How much memory does my .NET application use?
