Profiling a Windows service application

CGCG Posts: 2
When I use MP5 to profile our VB.net Windows service, each time I take a memory Snapshot the private bytes jump by 3-8MB

If I create a windows form app to start up the same service code I do not see the same memory jump.

Could there be a problem with the Memory Snapshot and windows services?

    There's no indication of a problem and every reason to think the profiler is reliable. Counters are only updated by the CLR on a garbage collect. A GC happens on every snapshot.
