Crash Dump Analysis Patterns (Part 183)

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

The case of an error reporting fault chain led me to First Fault Stack Trace memory dump analysis pattern that corresponds to First Fault software diagnostics pattern proper. Here the term first fault is used for an exception that was either ignored by surrounding code or led to other exceptions or error message boxes with stack traces that masked the first one. Typical examples where it is sometimes possible to get a first exception stack trace include but not limited to:

It is also sometimes possible unless a stack region was paged out to get partial stack traces from execution residue when the sequence of return addresses was partially overwritten by subsequently executed code.

Software Diagnostics Services

Friday, July 13th, 2012

For some time I was struggling with finding a good name for memory dump and software trace analysis activities. The name Memoretics I use for the science of memory dump analysis (that also incorporates software traces) seems not so good to describe the whole practical activity that should be transparent to everyone in IT. Fortunately, I timely understood that all these activities constitute the essence of software diagnostics that previously lacked any solid foundation. Thus, Software Diagnostics Institute was reborn from the previous Crash Dump Analysis Portal. This institute does pure and applied research and scientific activities and in recent years was funded mainly from OpenTask publisher and recently from Memory Dump Analysis Services. The latter company also recognized that the broadening of its commercial activities requires a new name. So, Software Diagnostics Services was reborn:
