I’m always looking for ways to make debugging easier…because I’m not very good at it! But debugging can give you some amazing insights into what is happening on your server or more specifically in memory. I’m not saying it is step one when you have an issue, but I think it is something that every engineer should have in there toolbox.
I would recommend any of the following tools
- SNAP by Todd Carter http://todd-carter.com/post/2012/05/05/Making-Debugging-a-SNAP
- DebugDiag by Microsoft PFE http://blogs.msdn.com/b/debugdiag/
There are many other great tools out there but they take a knowledge…that I just don’t have so if you’re like me look at these and hopefully you can include one of them in your toolbox.
