At Version 7.3, which shipped on April 17, 2006, you can graphically display memory usage information. To this by selecting generating a graphical view. Here's are some examples:[br][br] http://www.etnus.com/Documentation/latest/html/TotalView_Tips/images/perspective.png
Here are some features you should be aware of: [/url] Change the chart type by selecting an item in the pulldown list. Your choices are: Line, Bar, Stacked Bar, and Pie. [/url] You can change and adjust the size of the chart by selecting items from the magnifying glass pulldown list. [/url] If you click on a process within most charts, the Memory Debugger selects the process in the lower half of the view. In most cases, it will draw a line or a crosshair so that you can easily compare different process values. [/url] Sort the process information by clicking on the text above the tabular information in the bottom part of the view. [/url] Suppress the display of memory type by clicking on the colored buttons above the chart. For example, the Text and Data areas (the green and red areas or lines) are not very interesting so you might want to click the green and red buttons so that the Memory Debugger does not display this information.
