Large Peak Commit Charge at Startup

Q: Large Peak Commit Charge at Startup

Greetings All,

Hope this is the correct forum. I just recently purchased an off lease HP NC6230 laptop pre-loaded with XP Pro SP 2. The laptop boots ridiculously fast and all programs operate flawlessly. My question is more out of curiosity than anything else as I don't have any issues...yet. I want to make sure I don't have a possible future issue that will cause me to have to reinstall XP or do something else and thereby lose all the programs I'm about to download/install.

Only because I recently added memory to my other HP laptop and my older Dell Dimension desktop am I now more familiar with Task Manager. So the first thing I did after booting up the NC6230 was check the task manager. I have 2 GB RAM and my concern is that the Peak Commit Charge right after startup is at 1.8 GB. My other HP laptop has 2 GB and, even after using programs all day, maybe hits 1.2GB. Same with the Dell.

It's not causing a problem but I can't figure out what's loading. There's barely anything running in the process list - the program totals don't come close to the peak charge. I did the usual cleanup in MSCONFIG startup but there's nothing there really. I then did a safe mode boot up and the peak was around 400K so there's definitely something loading or causing this "spike" during regular boot.

I've read tons of threads about similar issues but not where the safe mode is so much less. I wouldn't even sweat it but my other PCs are running tons of programs and not even close to the physical memory.

If it matters, the virtual memory is set to 3070 and 4000. My available physical memory at startup is right around the same as the Peak charge...1.79GB - 1.80GB. I also took out the extra 1GB chip [leaving 1GB total] to see what would happen. The peak in that case was around 790K right after startup - still about 80% of physical. Like I said, it's not causing a problem but how can I find out why the peak is so large at startup? Any suggestions?

Thanks for your input...really appreciate it.

Preferred Solution: Large Peak Commit Charge at Startup

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Commit charge is not limited to showing physical memory usage.
It includes pagefiles/virtual memory.

When I first log on after boot up and immediately open the windows Task Manager I always find a peak commit charge of around 427450 (see attachment) plus or minus 50.

Because my daily applications never use this much memory this peak charge does not increase during the day. But next morning at start up there it is again, very consistent.

Microsoft Bootvis shows only explorer.exe and Sygate Personal firewall running at start up.

HiJackThis shows nothing of concern (see attachment)

dxdiag shows no problems.

How can I determine what is using so much memory at start up?

Hey friends,

Hello friends & guests this post aim at sharing information about "Commit charge" some of us must be aware of this term & many don't know what the Hell is this, so here is this article that will help you to understand another aspect of your wonderful Windows...

In computing, commit charge is a term used in Microsoft Windows operating systems to describe the total amount of virtual address space for which the backing store is the pagefile. It may be thought of as the maximum potential pagefile usage.
The Windows Task Manager utility, in its Performance tab, shows three counters related to commit charge:
? Total is the amount of pagefile-backed virtual address space in use, i.e., the current commit charge. The corresponding performance counter is called "Committed Bytes".

? Limit is the maximum possible value for Total; it is the sum of the current pagefile size plus the physical memory available for paging (this excludes RAM that is assigned to non-pageable areas). The corresponding performance counter is called "Commit Limit".

? Peak is the highest amount that the total commit charge has reached since the computer was last rebooted.

The program Process Explorer reports the same set of values with the slight variation that Total is called Current there and additionally provides percentages of Peak and Current towards the Limit value.

The commit charge increases when any program is opened and used,... Read more

Deepak, I dont want to be rude and at least you've taken the trouble, but that kind of info (in formal, jargonized language) is available all over the internet. IMHO, you'll be doing the SF comunity much better service if you distill the concepts into simple language that even my granny can understand. As it is right now, noobies will have trouble grasping it and oldies already know it all. Again, no offense meant and think about it.

I was wondering about the commit charge usage on my computer. I'm not sure what causes it to go up and down. Mine tends to go up, but the amount of processes I use stay the same. So I am wondering what possibly is make it go up, is there a way to figure that out? Sorry if this is an odd question, just slightly concerned about how the charge is being used.

A:commit charge blow out


It may not help, but you never know, this happened to me once. But it might be something different. I tried starting in safe mode. When i was in safe mode, everything was going at a good speed. Try that first.

Then after that i booted back into windows and went to start > Run > type msconfig

In this, i went to the startup tab and to my surprise, despite virus and spyware scans, there was a ton of rubbish that was starting up that i had no knowledge of. Some with the weirdest of names.

If you try this and untick everything that you don't need or if you don't know what it is then restart it. Then hopefully that might solve it partially.

After that, everything i managed to narrow down as spyware i took the name and searched for it in the registry and removed entires. This in turn removed it the startup list in msconfig. It also in some occassions allowed it to be picked up by spyware scans second time round. unsure why though. Hopefully it helps.

I'm a bit confused at how this works. Currently I'm running a very demanding game - ArmA 3. Physical Memory usage is at 60%, which is just over half of my 8GB of physical ram. I have a page file of 8192MB. That would come to a commit maximum of 16GB if I understand correctly.

I noticed however as I played, the commit charge was around 90%. How would this be possible if physical memory usage is at 60%?

A:Is this a normal commit charge?

Just going by your figures and not quite sure my logic is correct:

60% of 8GB = 4.8GB

Plus the 8GB pagefile = 12.8GB

90% of 16GB = 14.4GB

Difference of 1.6GB that could be attributed to machine overhead so it doesn't sound too serious. Though it is possible you may have a memory leak somewhere.

You yourself mentioned, "I'm running a very demanding game":

applications sometimes use a reservation to create a large block of virtual memory and then commit it as needed to ensure that the committed memory is contiguous

Scroll down to committed memory here: http://Pushing the Limits of Windows: Virtual Memory

This reservation could be why you're seeing the 90% commit rate.

So, new to these forums, and I'm getting kind of desperate.

Starting this morning, whenever I am using my computer, my commit charge is sitting at over 3000. Right now, it's sitting at 3800.

This is what it was a few minutes ago. GBtray is Game Booster, something I use when I play World of Warcraft, but it's currently not on, just inactive in the tray.

I have ran spyware, adware, malware, and virus scans, as well as CCleaner.

None have shown anything, nor fixed this. I see nothing that would cause this massive of a commit charge.

Does anyone know what might be wrong?

I'm having memory leaks, I think,  in Windows 8. 
After some time it accumulates commit charge to the max.
Right now, it is 150h of running (by the idle CPU) and it has 16G in commit charges. Physical stays at ~4-5G at all times. With time commit charge goes to ~32G and suystem starts to be sluggish more and more in the process. Here's the RAMMap:

and here's the top memory users.. 

I'm using Windows 8 on Samsung Series 7 Laptop
CPU: i7-3635QM
RAM: 8G + 16G Express cache 
Video: Nvidia GT640M + Intel HD 4000
I have tied to disable Express cache without effect
I updated the video drivers and it seemed to improve a bit, but still has similar effect.
Every time I reboot it starts almost normal with 3-4G of physical use and a bit more commit, and then grows. 

A:Memory leaks - high commit charge

the nonpaged pool is too high. Use poolmon.exe from the WDK to trace which pooltag is the cause. Now use findstr to see which driver uses the tag.

Microsoft explained this here in detail:

I looked at some of those issues and new Samsung devices have a software Intellimem installed which uses the Pool tag ECMC in the driver intmsd.sys. Look if you also have this issue."A programmer is just a tool which converts caffeine into code"

hi, i posted on the Viruses/Malware forum 3 days ago & haven't received a response, but after some further research, i'm pretty sure this isn't a virus or malware issue (hoping i'm not going to have to wait another few days on this forum). The problem essentially has to do with the svchost.exe process. Whenever i opened internet explorer or firefox, the system would gradually bog down, taking forever to do any simple task, and eventually freeze up. The CPU usage would also gradually climb to 100% and stay there, mostly used by svchost.

Now, i think i found a temporary solution to the CPU usage problem, by stopping "Automatic Updates" in the "Computer Management" window, and changing the startup type to "disabled." CPU usage is now low while using the internet and the computer hasn't gotten extremely slow or frozen since making the change. If I have to keep automatic updates off in order to avoid this problem, then i guess it's not a huge deal to just use the microsoft website for updates... but it'd be great if i could turn it back on.

However, I think that might've merely eliminated one symptom but not the real problem, because the commit charge is still very high (2250M/2900M), again mostly due to svchost (according to process explorer). From what i've read, this should be no more than 400-500M. There are a few other issues I'd like to tackle as well, but I'd like to fix this one firs... Read more

A:Commit Charge inconsistency with process mem usage on task manager

They're two separate things,you'll notice that it matches the PF Usage,this is the paging file,but it's not the actual amount of memory used but what's been allocated just in case it's needed.

Because you've got so many processes running it's set to a high level,as an example I've got 38 processes running and a commit charge of 285mb,but my highest page file usage has only been 11mb.

Hello everyone this is my first post here and I'm needy today...

My company has most access to the hardware/software locked down so I'm limited to the things I can do.

My problem is that my computer runs slow. I'm on XP and have several files for our customer base; email is huge but I keep most of them in archives in my Outlook 2007 I have 3 different inboxes one for my main corp email, one for voice mails through Call Pilot and the other for the department I run.

A:Page file usage rediculous, commit charge high....And can't find solution!!!! :(

first of all, having a page file on an external drive is going to be slow. way slower than any internal drive. second of all nowadays you should let windows manage your page file. third of all, if you do set a custom page file, allow it to grow dynamically as it is needed.

remove windows desktop search, unless you use it and really need it.

Fix Windows 7 SP1 Slow Startup Due to Large Number of Restore Points

A fix offered by Microsoft is designed to help customers deal with poor boot performance in specific scenarios involving Windows 7 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

The Redmond company confirmed the issue and noted that impacted users have created a large number of restore points, a move which cause the slowing down of the startup process.

According to the software giant, affected customers are most likely using large hard disks in addition to create too many restore points on their machines.

Well, I don't think 50 is a big number - but I do agree 50 restore points are really more than what one (read: I) need.

That explains a bit or two. Will either take down these restore points to a sane number or apply this patch. Unsure which of them, but I will definitively work on this.

According to the software giant, affected customers are most likely using large hard disks in addition to create too many restore points on their machines.

Microsoft did not explain just how slow the startup process gets, but it appears that boot performance degradation is sufficient for users to become aware that something it’s going on.

“This issue occurs because the boot plan for the ReadyBoot feature exceeds the size limit of 512 kilobytes (KB). Each restore point creates a snapshot of Windows that Volsnap.sys must validate during the startup process,” Microsoft explained.

“When you create many restore points, the boot plan for the ReadyBoot feature eventually exceeds the size limit of 512 KB, and cannot be stored. Therefore, startup I/O operations are not precached, and the startup process is slow.

Just wondering if someone can clarify something for me regarding memory -
Currently running a laptop with 1GB RAM.
Virtual Memory set at 1.5GB min - 3GB max., currently allocated at 1.5GB.
(not exactly sure what that means )

With everthing closed (except AV, Indexers, Monitors, etc.) Windows Task Manager shows a 'Commit Charge' of 526M/2387, which as I understood it was how much RAM was currently being used (22% in this case, meaning 78% was still free.) Not sure if I understand this correctly.
Also shows only 6% CPU usage.

Running a progam called Notebook Hardware Control shows free RAM at only 420MB (42%.) Also shows my Virtual Memory at a Total of 2GB and Free of 1.8GB which seems to differ from the settings Windows shows.

Upgrading RAM wouldn't be a problem, I'm just wondering if it's necessary - am I using 22% or 58% according to these? After initial Startup am I starting from having 78% of RAM or 42% free for apps?


A:RAM vs. Virtual vs. Commit

The Commit Charge includes all allocated memory, including virtual memory. Physical Memory is what you need to look at if you want to know how much RAM is installed/free.

After researching this for a day and half I am worried that this won't be solved - but hopefully I'll be as wrong as I am when playing the lotto.

Okay, enough whining, here we go - and THANX in advance for taking the time to check this out:

OS - XP sp2
problem with Outlook Express - messages:
1 - Outlook Express could not be started. The application was unable to open the Outlook Express message store. Your computer may be out of memory [yeah, right!!] or your disk is full [90 gigs free dude!!]. Contact Microsoft support for further assistance [as if it existed!!]. (0x800C012E, 5)

2 - Outlook Express could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be initialized. Outlook Express may not be installed correctly.

Sooooooo, I did search out the error message and the MOSE.DLL fixes and all I could find relevant to SP2 was to reinstall SP2 - which I did before checking actually. Still no difference - could not find any fix for SP2 other than that - - all other fixes are for SP1.

Would be very appreciateive for any advice at all, just this side short of "shoot yourself".

Thanks again

So while playing Destiny 2 my computer suddenly shut down and restarted. But when it restarted my monitor had no signal. I plugged the HDMI cable into my motherboard and I got an image from the onboard graphics driver. Obviously my PC is working fine right now using Intel HD 4600. My GPU was still producing light through the Sapphire logo on the side. I pulled the GPU out and removed the shroud. Upon inspection I found a rubber strip on the inside of the shroud probably used to reinforce the entire unit as one solid piece. This rubber strip and the surrounding area of the circuit board it contacts was wet. By that I mean half of the top of the circuit board was wet. I figure that this is moisture that has been collecting over a very long period of time. I've had this GPU for something like 3 years and I've never removed the shroud before. Anyways, I dried it off and put the GPU back in the motherboard and powered on the machine. Still no image but I have the Sapphire logo light still. I restarted my computer. Now I have no light on the Sapphire logo, and no fan spin upon startup. Just a quick flicker of light and then nothing right as I press the power button. So obviously RX480 has bit the dust, probably from liquid damage. But why did it die so suddenly after absolutely no... Read more

I have a database with several tables. One of them is for Contacts and another is for Projects that the contacts are associated to. I would like to build a form that would allow me to look for a contact and if they are new add them to the list. I would also like to be able to change the project table from the same form.

Within the project part of the form, I would like to have a commit field for the customer. This will probably be linked to another table, but I would like to have the ability to add a new commit to this table. I would also like to see at least the last commit for that client. I was thinking of adding a button to my form that was linked to a macro that would add the existing commit, date, client name, and who the client spoke to, to the commit table. I think this would only allow me to see on my form only the last commit. I am not exactly sure how to add a button, or how to do a macro in access. I have done them in excel but not access.

I would also like to add a hyperlink on the form to the commit table that already has the customer's commits filtered.

Any help on any of the topics would be greatly appreciated. If you would like any other information let me know. The database is very large so I could not attach.

I can't believe it...My laptop: HP 530 built with azalia codec, intel high def.
I just plugged in my mono speaker built-with-amplifier in the headphone input. (the drivers for sound were installed and there were just 2 inputs: headphone and mic) After I plugged the amplifier's cable out, there was a buzzy-unsmooth and distorted sound in one of the speakers of my laptop.(when I tried to listen a song, the sound was mono, buzzy, with distortion and I couldn't understand anything) And there appears to be no sign of life for the headphones input..
To conclude is there anything to do? Did I really f**** it up?

A:Before I commit suicide - help me! dead soundcard?

No,don`t commit suicide...........yet !

So your laptop sound was workin fine,then you plugged an amplifier into

the headphone jack,and now all you get is a buzzy distorted sound from

the onboard speaker,and nothin from the headphone socket ?

It sounds like you killed it..........commit suicide !

But first, look HERE and check out PMCIA and USB solutions.

Hey everyone,

I have been having trouble with my network. I recently, (2 days ago), upgraded my cable high speed internet service from 2mbps down and .2 mbps up to 15 mbps down and 2 mbps up. However, even during non peak hours, pretty much all the time, the best download speed I can get is 4-5mbps. My upload speed stays where it should, at 2mbps. It is really only my download speed I am concerned about, because this happens every day all day. When I first upgraded the service, I got 12-13 mbps download speed, so something must have happened between then and now where I cant receive that anymore. My modem is a doscis 2, not 3, so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. It is an Arris TM602G/15 model.But as I said, I have received close to the full download speeds before, but not anymore.

Any help? Thanks!

A:Not getting speeds I am paying for... Even during NON-peak

Try contacted the service provider again ? They should have technicians to be able to check it for you. Could also be a line problem, did you add anymore lines to your cable lines inside ?

How are you testing it, where ? Did you change any other settings on PC. Windows does all optimizations for you.

Try resetting the modem, unplug it for 15 seconds, then plug back in. Or unplug and reboot PC. Usually a way to reset the modem back to factory state, need to check your service providers website for your model modem to be able to access it's settings. Usually you type in an address in your browser to access it.

Hi guys,

I've recently bought a new computer, and it's an issue I've had with another Windows 7 desktop that I purchased before. Unfortunately, when I fixed it originally, I don't exactly remember how because it was after hours of frustrating trial and error.
Anyways, the issue is that while all volume levels are set for peak output, the green/grey volume bar is only going up about halfway. I have been told to check all settings, check my speakers and reinstall my audio driver; however, none of them have fixed the problem. I have plugged my speakers directly into my iPod and they work fine, and I've tried different music-playing software, and the same issue persists.

If anybody has any ideas on how to fix this problem, it was be appreciated.

I have a Lenovo T460s that will only charge when the computer is either turned off or in hibernation. When turned on, I get the dialog box stating that "Incorrect AC adapter is attached." , along with the boilerplate text that details the problem, and gives some helpful advice.  I have searched the forums for a solution, and have tried a few things (like disabling airplane charging mode) but to no avail. We had replaced the power cord and charger, but the problem persists. I suspect that the charging port itself was damaged, and not the charger. Is it possible to determine if the problem is truly due to a lack of amperage (or wattage)?  I suspect that the rectangular charge adapter has a simple detection mechanism to determine the wattage of the power supply, and that this mechanism is causing the laptop to incorrectly detect the wrong type of power supply.If this is the case, is there a setting, either in BIOS or in Windows itself, that can disable this detection and enable the laptop to charge, despite the damaged port? (I realize this is not ideal or recommended.) Thanks in advance. 

A:T460s won't charge properly-"Incorrect AC adapter is attached."-work around damaged charge port

The determination is based on the resistance between the signal pin (in the center) and the outside face of the plug.

Hi today I've been trying to add some driver packages to my Windows 7 Enterprise image, but every time I try to commit the changes a get the "error: 5 access is denied" error.
So the First thing I did was try to take ownership of the entire folder that I had unmounted the .wim file to, this process was stopped, stating access denied and specifying svchost.exe
I now have ownership and full access over everything but two files, both of which are svchost.exe, I have also tried editing the permissions on them directly and when I try to take ownership of them I am met with the error, "Unable to set new owner
on svchost.exe access is denied"
The Files paths are as follows

My family purchased a new Dell in September. Within a month, my sister had managed to, we presume, corrupt the hard drive due to bad downloads. I haven't been too involved with the entire scenario, as I've been away at university. Anyways, this is the long and short of it:

The commit charge, just recently, has sky-rocketed (see end of post) despite running very few or no applications and having almost 80% of the hard drive free; applications like to crash, complete with the Microsoft notification, but the applications tend to be those that we use often (ex: netscape when accessing webmail or hotmail, starting up The Sims 2); AVG, our virus program, fails to properly scan, citing "Reading Errors" and the like, and rarely updates properly; and some applications won't run at all, like Defrag (until now, functioning properly), Firefox and Ad-Aware SE.

My father said that he would take it into his office in January (he works in IT consulting and e-learning) and get the guys to take a look at it, but personally, I don't know if the computer will make it until then.

Any advice?
