_ProcessListProperties()


Recommended Posts

I tried adding this after the For/Next loop for "; Get PerfProc data" in the original:

; Get PerfProc data
        For $oProc In $colProcs
        ; ...
        Next

    ; Release Refresher object
        $oRefresher.DeleteAll
        $oRefresher = 0
        $colProcs = 0
Still had the memory leak. ;)

I moved the creation of $oWMI to a Global variable where it is only created once - and there was still a memory leak. :lmao:

Then I moved the creation of $oRefresher outside the loop to a Global - the leak went away. :D

This does not show the memory leak:

#include <Array.au3>; Only for _ArrayDisplay()

; Get collection of all processes from Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfProc_Process
; Have to use an SWbemRefresher to pull the collection, or all Perf data will be zeros
Global $oWMI = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate,authenticationLevel=pktPrivacy}!\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\cimv2")
Global $oRefresher = ObjCreate("WbemScripting.SWbemRefresher")
Global $colRefProcs = $oRefresher.AddEnum($oWMI, "Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfProc_Process" ).objectSet
$oRefresher.Refresh

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Quit")

; Loop to watch for memory leak
While 1
    _ProcessListProperties()
    Sleep(20)
WEnd

Func _Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc  ;==>_Quit

So, if you have to repeat the function in a tight loop, this code might help - but it doesn't explain why the $oRefresher Swbemrefresher object leaks so bad in a loop.

;)

 

 

Is above bold information still valid? Then I moved the creation of $oRefresher outside the loop to a Global - the leak went away

Because I put it on the tight loop and face the same problem.

If by create the $oRefresher outside the loop to a global solve the problem, I'm going to code it that way

I did get that  same error as you reported but just hung till you pressed ESC. I noticed that it did not output the process list so I some code from the original post and integrated the last posted code change for testing. See if it works for you.

for some monitoring tasks i'm using WMI with a SWbemRefresher.

on most of my system it's working fine. however, i have a few where it fails on the following line:

$colItems = $oRefresher.AddEnum($objWMIService, "Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfProc_Process").ObjectSet

any idea how to find out why exactly it's failing?

could be system local specific or whatever who knows.

any suggestions how to troubleshoot?

  thanks in advance, francoiste

please ignore my previous question on COM error 80020009.

i have answered my own question (as to what might be wrong and how to troubleshoot):
it turned out that on this particular system my performance counter registry was corrupt!
i was also getting errors when running "perfmon.msc".

eventually i solved it by following the steps in https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2554336 :

  • open an elevated command prompt
  • CD /D C:\windows\system32
  • lodctr.exe /R
  • CD /D C:\windows\sysWOW64
  • lodctr.exe /R
  • WINMGMT.EXE /RESYNCPERF
  • <reboot>
