Querying Peak Commit Bytes with Powershell (via NtQuerySystemInformation)

One of the more interesting values to determine how much memory to allocate a machine is the Peak Committed Bytes. This value is available as "Commit Charge (K) - Peak" from Windows 2003 Task Manger and from Sysinternals Process Explorer and is a good representation of the maximum amount of memory that has been used at once since the computer was last rebooted. Wikipedia has more details about the Commit Charge numbers if you want to read more.
