Making Software Troubleshooting Simple

Excellent read to refine general problem solving skills towards simplicity, understand broad applicability of modeling and just for fun:

Simpleology: The Simple Science of Getting What You Want

But from Amazon

Now I’m going to have a simple lunch and read this simple book. What about the rating? Of course, it is simple too! Maximum! 1 star in my simple zero-one binary rating system - worth (1) or not worth (0) to read.

    I particularly like the law of straight lines applied to spooler crash or hangs: don’t do printer driver elimination one by one - go straight and dump the spooler (or collect a postmortem dump) or if we cannot get dumps due to security reasons get the output from the following commands:

    .symfix
    !analyze -v
    !analyze -v -hang
    ~*kv 100
    !locks
    lmv
