The graph for resources (memory) used by my application is ever increasing. Does this mean my app doesn't release resources as it should, or is this a normal scenario for the profiler?
Is there a way to find out if the GC works properly?
Are you seeing memory growth in the graph only? Or memory growth between snapshots?
The graph. Haven't checked snapshots.
Same here. It grows but in reality it doesn't (Android app).
Ditto, but cant take snapshots to verify
Well, at least on Android one can run DDMS (or whatever it is called) and check native memory usage to see that in fact it isn't growing.
Device Monitor, but running Device Monitor locks up VS hence Profiler
You mean it locks if started from within VS? I start it as an app and it works without locking anything.
