    Hi,

    I want to determine how much memory Unity is using at runtime so i know if it is safe to load in more data or stop and wait for memory to become free. This needs to be an automated process so i cant use the profiler.

    I have tried Process.GetCurrentProcess().PrivateMemorySize64 but it is allways 0. It seems mono does not support this.
    I even tried building a .Net DLL to do the query but i still get 0.

    Does anyone know a way around this?

    Thanks

    Karl

    OK i have found a solution. I can get to the details through the profiler providing i do a development build.
