HaHA, I'm back! I was just sending the support team some info on performance troubleshooting and third-party tools we commonly use. Here's some of it.
Technet's Sysinternals was created by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell of Microsoft. The site includes:
- System, process, networking and security debugging and administration tools
- Free articles and training material
- Books, videos, and live courses (for purchase)
I happen to use Process Monitor and Process Explorer most often, but there are plenty of other handy tools. The webcasts include real world use cases.
Also check out the Technet Ask The Performance Team blog for more on Windows performance, and here are some technical Windows links I have pulled at random from my bookmarks.
...and here's a picture of a double angler.
