The Performance Monitor is a Windows Desktop Gadget that provides a colour-coded status bar indicating the level of usage of virtual memory by AutoCAD products. To get the best performance from Windows applications, it is better to use Physical Memory. When running low on Physical Memory, powerful programs like Autodesk applications are forced to use disk as memory. When this happens, memory intensive applications become less responsive. The Performance Monitor for AutoCAD provides you with feedback on how your system resources are being used as you work with your designs. The Technology Preview supports Windows 7 and Windows Vista at this time. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.
To ensure the best experience for those participating, this technology preview is currently limited to: Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, United Kingdom, and United States. We hope to expand to other geographies in the future.
The Technology Preview operates until May 1, 2011.
