Clipboard pages that remain unused for long periods could indicate a design or implementation flaw that can hurt performance. For example, the application created a page but neglected to use the Page-Remove method to remove the page after it was no longer needed.When building or testing an application, you can discover whether your own processing has created such "orphan" or "near-orphan" page.
- Select Clipboard from the developer toolbar in Dev Studio.
- Once the clipboard is open, select .
- In the resulting grid of data, look in the Est Size (KB), Last Passivation, and Last Activation columns to identify any pages that were automatically passivated but never reactivated.
- Research whether such pages are needed at all, and whether they can be removed at specific points in the application, to reduce clipboard size.
