Hi,

I'd love to see foobar task manager along the lines of the windows' or chrome's one. It would be nice to see how much your computer resources use each component.

You can create a close approximation of a built-in memory analysis tool for foobar2000 by doing this:


Create and add a toolbar button named "Run VMMap" to your fb2k layout. If the button is clicked, an external program named "VMMap" is launched
with command line parameter like this: vmmap.exe foobar2000.exe .


In this screenshot, I am running a brand new install of foobar2000 with only one added component "foo_wave_seekbar.dll" and one playlist
...and I added a toolbar button to the layout ("Run VMMap"):



In this screenshot, you can read detailed info about VMMap:



In this screenshot, foobar2000 is running and playing a track, and i have clicked on the "Run VMMap" button at the toolbar
...and VMMap pops up with the specified command line:



So there you have it; a memory analyzer tool built into foobar2000 using a 'QuickLaunch' type button .

Sorry to disappoint you but that is not even a close approximation of something that could be called memory usage of a component. What looks like the memory usage is only the image file. That means the executable program (i.e. the dll file more or less). The memory that a component requests is in the category "Heap" which is not split by dlls.
