H&@ƒpÞþ=ROS20MMHM.P43 OS20MEMU *** Help *** Version 1.0 1-7-93
Authors: Glenn Brew & Ross Cook (c) Copyright IBM Corp. 1987-1993

OS20MEMU is used to display a "snapshot" of various statistics
related to memory usage in an OS/2 system.

Key assignments:
F1 - Display this panel
F2 - "Refresh" memory display statistics
F3 - End
F4 - Display expanded application statistics
(See "PID" description below for
information on this option.)
F5 - Display expanded system statistics
F6 - Select Function keys / PID entry
F9 - "Print" panel to disk file
F11 - Delete saved panel file from disk
ENTER - PID entry completed, show process detail
(If no PID entered, does "refresh" only )
ESC - End

The display is divided into a fixed upper portion and a variable
length lower portion. The fields on the upper part of the
display are:

Allocated / In Use - the total amount of storage allocated
and actually in use.

Virtual Size - the amount of virtual storage allocated
and committed for use.

Free - amount of storage not being used.

This size is actually just what is available
for applications and general system use.

Amount Swapped - the total amount of storage swapped to disk.

Applications - total used by all applications.

Shared Storage - storage used for shared programs and data.

Vdisk(s) - storage in use by all IBM Vdisks.
A Vdisk is optional and may not be found in
all systems.

Disk Cache - storage in use for a disk cache.
A disk cache is optional and only appears
here if a DISKCACHE= or a RUN CACHE statement

Operating System - total used by the OS/2 operating system.

This includes:
- the OS/2 operating system code and data
- all OS/2 device drivers
- the sum of system storage used for each

PID ? - enter the PID of the process you want details

After keying the value, press Enter to have
the value read; then either Enter or F2 and F4
may be used to monitor any changes for that

The lower portion of the display provides a list of all running
applications (processes). Also included is an indication of the
amount of private storage owned and swapped at this time for each

* *
* NOTE: The values given here are intended to show the private *
* storage items owned by each of the running programs. *
* *
* The amount of storage for those items which is actually *
* present in memory as well as swapped to disk is shown. *
* *
* This display does not show all the storage items each *
* program may actually be using. For example, NOT *
* included on this screen are any shared memory items. *
* *
* To perform a more detailed analysis of the total *
* storage actually being used for any application *
* requires considerable processing time. This delay is *
* not usually desired on this high level system view. *
* *
* If more details are desired for a particular *
* application this may be obtained by simply entering *
* the PID for that application and pressing Enter or F4. *
* *

Also available is an option to save a copy of this display panel in
a disk file in the current directory. This makes analysis and / or
comparison of the overall system memory usage at various times much

Function key F9 is used to cause the contents of the main panel to
be placed in the file OS20MEMU.DMN. If this file already exists,
the data is appended to the current contents.

Function key F11 (Alt-F1) is used to delete the listing file
Enter Esc=Cancel s

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
