Advanced .NET Debugging is the 1st centred, pragmatic advisor to monitoring down today’s most intricate and demanding .NET software insects. it's the basically e-book to concentration completely on utilizing robust local debugging instruments, together with WinDBG, NTSD, and CDB, to debug .NET purposes. utilizing those instruments, writer Mario Hewardt explains the way to establish the true root reasons of problems—far extra quick than you ever may possibly with different debuggers.


Hewardt first introduces the main options had to effectively use .NET’s local debuggers. subsequent, he turns to classy debugging innovations, utilizing real-world examples that reveal many universal C# programming errors.


This publication allows you to

  • Make useful use of postmortem debugging, together with PowerDBG and different “power tools”

To make life easier for developers, this complexity is partially mitigated by the introduction of new abstraction layers, unifying the underlying low-level mechanics through a consistent framework and associated runtime. NET is a great example of an abstraction that provides tremendous benefits to developers. NET touts this simplicity, you must not forget that the fundamental building blocks should still be understood. NET has automatic memory management capabilities in the form of a generational garbage collector, yet one of the most common forms of problems encountered are memory “leak” issues.

Understanding how the garbage collector works, and even more importantly, which tools to use to analyze application and garbage collector behavior is crucial for the successful development and support of a product. NET applications. The discussion of each tool is left intentionally short so as to introduce you to the basic concept of the tool (download, install, usage scenarios). Throughout the remaining portions of the book, we will harness the full power of these tools when performing root cause analysis of real-world problems.

Once entered, the package (ZIP file) can be downloaded and extracted to a location of choice. exe from the installation folder. ps1 Simply copy the PowerDbg script into that file and reopen a Powershell command window. You can now utilize the PowerDbg commands as illustrated in an example in Figure 1-5. PowerDbg works on the basis of sending commands to the running WinDbg instance. The first part of any command execution is the opening of a log file, followed by running the actual command and then closing the log file.
