RADAR is a memory leak detection technology built into Windows 7 and integrated with Watson (error reporting) and AutoBug (automatic bug filing). It allows Microsoft product teams and third parties to discover and fix memory leaks early in the product cycle and after release. Since RADAR runs on customer machines, leaks can be caught during public betas, after release, and by third parties, thus ridding the entire ecosystem of memory leaks. RADAR-shipped components are highly optimized to have no appreciable performance impact.
Meet RADAR developers Stephan Doll, Baskar Sridharan, Anthony Lorelli and Keshava Subramanya. They dig into the architecture, design and implementation of this great technology. RADAR helps make Windows more reliable and stable by automatically pinpointing memory leaks in code that are then packaged up in bug reports that land in the hands of developers responsible for the memory leaking code. This means quicker to market solutions and knowledge gain that will prevent the same bugs from cropping up again: developers learn what went wrong and why so wthey won't make the same mistakes again. You'll learn about the most common mistakes made and you should use this to prevent memory leaks in your own native code.
