TechNet Webcast: Microsoft.com Operations Introduces Real World Debugging: Determining When You Have a Problem and Beginning the Initial Debugging (Level 300)
It is not always easy to know you have a problem, nor is it always easy to begin the debugging process. Join a senior systems engineer from the Microsoft.com Operations Debug team for an overview of monitoring and analysis tools, followed by a presentation of the initial steps of debugging. This webcast shows how to investigate cases of high CPU usage, determine which tools to use through the course of debugging issues, analyze event and log data to proactively find issues, and debug general exceptions in Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 applications.

TechNet Webcast: Microsoft.com Operations Introduces Real World Debugging: Diagnosing Memory Leaks in ASP.NET Applications
Memory leaks or excessive memory consumption can manifest themselves in many ways, from subtle performance degradation issues to full application failure. Join a senior systems engineer from the Microsoft.com Operations Debug team to get an in-depth, real-world look at how the team handles memory consumption problems whenever they arise. This webcast takes you through the process of investigating memory consumption issues with managed code and shows you how to effectively use the debugger tools and extensions to analyze memory usage. Arranged into three live debug sessions using actual applications that have experienced memory issues, we show you how these investigations are conducted.

TechNet Webcast: Microsoft.com Operations Introduces Real World Debugging: Debugging Without the Debugger in IIS and ASP.NET (Level 300)
You can gain lot of valuable information about the state of the internet information services (IIS) and the applications running in its worker processes by using Event Tracing for Windows (ETW), which enables you to trace data without attaching a debugger. Join this webcast as we walk you through the tools needed to extract the data, common troubleshooting scenarios, and a summary of the performance data that can be extracted from these trace sessions. We conclude with an overview of some of the new tracing features coming in IIS7.
