My Vision of TaaS

Monday, December 5th, 2011

On the portal I published my vision of software tools as a service in the context of post-construction software problem solving. The main part is software problem description language (SPDL) which was previously introduced as Riemann programming language. I have decided to keep the name.

Crash Dump Analysis Patterns (Part 159)

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Sometimes we have a value or a pointer or a handle and would like to know all memory addresses that reference it. This can be done by virtual memory search (s WinDbg command). If you look for references in code (for example, or pool tags please see this case study) you can combine search with !for_each_module WinDbg extension command. There is also !search command for physical pages. We cover this Value References pattern in the forthcoming Advanced Windows Memory Dump Analysis training with a step-by-step complete memory dump analysis exercise. For object references there is also recently added !obtrace command with good examples in WinDbg help.
