Free Tool: ATM version 3.0
Tim Mangan has released an update to his ATM tool (see original post here). This tool is especially useful in troubleshooting memory consumption of applications and system performance (particularly the system file cache, standby lists, and supercache). New in 3.0 is the ability to clear out more parts of memory. The intent of adding this is to help those performing repeated performance tests. The idea is to try to get the OS into a known state without portions of files being cached in various places, such that each run of an identical should perform with consistent results (even if the performance would be less than a "normal system"). Also new is the ability to report if the OS has detected any "bad" memory pages.
