Windows analog to Unix' 'ipcs -m' command

Does Windows have the notion of system-wide shared memory segments and is there a command for listing them?

Best Answer

The closest program I can think of for inspecting this would be Process Explorer. You will be able to look for shared memory segments (possibly called "sections", I'm not at a Windows machine right now so I can't check) in the list of open handles for processes.

Windows does not support shared memory sections that exist without a process that is holding a handle to them. So no, there is no direct equivalent to ipcs -m.
