  • Defrag Tools #115 - PerfView Part 3

    Does PerfView need full dumps for that? I've been trying to diagnose an alleged memory leak (it could as well just mean we have to scale it out) in a process who's baseline is 5GB memory usage. The "leak" manifests itself by the fact that after some time (it's a w3wp.exe, which is recycled automatically at 2pm, so it's less than 24 hours of running) the CPU spends more and more time in GC and there is quite a bit of paging (hard faults in resmon). Through perfmon counters, I've noticed that most of memory usage increase is in large object heap.

    My question is: will PerfView need to take the snapshot for over 2 minutes just like procdump's full memory dump deos in this case?

  • Defrag Tools: Live - //build/ 2013

    no creepy guy in the background this time, but daaaang, that ball thingie took some of my attention.

  • Defrag Tools: Live - TechEd USA 2013

    hah, who's the weirdo with the mobile phone in the background?

    Nice thing the show didn't skip a week because of TechEd. Keep it going.

  • Defrag Tools: #39 - Windows Performance Toolkit

    is the network I/O provider collecting the same data as the commandline "netsh trace start [parameters]"? Can you use this stuff safely in production? For instance on an Exchange or SharePoint server or Domain Controller?

  • Defrag: VS Compile prob, Moving AppData, Versioning AX

    @CHfish: isn't RAR proprietary (ie. if you want to support it in a paid product you have to pay for the license)?

  • Defrag: VS Compile prob, Moving AppData, Versioning AX

    @ 3D things I would print: obviously a "Channle9 Guy" whitch you seem to be lacking this episode.

    @universal remote in hotel: tell us if it worked once you do it.

  • Defrag: Task Bar, Pop ups and UNC Behavior

    @problems accessing UNC: I have a similar issue that when I type \\machine\C$\folder\ in the win+R prompt it fails, but typing the same UNC path in Windows Explorer succeeds. Try in Windows Explorer, if it works don't bother your admin - it might be by design in windows.

    @anti-pick: Most of these options look like just "different settings from around the system put together on one page" and that's completely OK, but when it says "this super hidden undocumented top secret switch", then you DO NOT want to switch it. It's hidden for a reason, it's undocumented for a reason (obsolete or designed for one single internal usage only or a tool for testers that somehow got left in the system).

  • Defrag: High CPU Usage, Audio Interrupt, Sharing Printers and Files

    re: the guitar thingie

    seems like a normal external soundcard, like the ones they add to ultra high end headphones.

  • Defrag Tools: #11 - ProcDump - Windows 8 & Process Monitor

    You guys forgot to update the Part 1 and Part 2 notes with links to Part 3 (the "Part 3" text below Part 1 and Part 2 links).

  • Defrag: UEFI, OS on RAM, Blocking Spam

    I'm connecting to two virtual machines in my company via RDP (VM1 and VM2). VM1 is working great all the time. VM2 one day disconnected me. It just closed the RDP session and denied any connection with me (eg. ping). The same happened the next day when I was working from home on a different computer via VPN. When I looked into the event log I saw this: "The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client. Client IP: [my ip]".  What is it and how to get into diagnosing it? I found many hints on how it could be fixed but I'm more interested in diagnosing because it happens only with VM2 - other machines don't think I'm a security issue so maybe there's something wrong with VM2. If it's of any help, VM2 is a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise with Active Directory, IIS, SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, SharePoint 2010, Visual Studio 2012 (yeah, I know... too much stuff for 4 gig of RAM) and smtp4dev, no other network services were installed (other than default Windows Server stuff like RDP).
