Bugslayer: Mini Dump Snapshots and the New SOS

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

In debugging some large Microsoft® . NET Framework-based ap-plications over the last few months, I've been spending more time looking at mini dumps than at live processes. This is mainly because in those large applications problems surface when the apps are running in production and not on test systems.

Debug SQL 2000 mini dump file

Hello, Lately i inherited a sql 2000 sp3a  server with issues (server hangs).On checking the logs i found the non yielding scheduler error(17883) in SQL logs during backups. So i applied SP4 and security patch KB948111 but i still see the non yielding scheduler error in our logs while backing up 2 of our production databases. Process 93:1 (1498) UMS Context 0x064C8888 appears to be non-yielding on Scheduler 7. SQL Version: Microsoft SQL Server  2000 - 8.00.2273 (Intel X86)   Mar  7 2008 22:19:58   Copyright (c) 1988-2003 Microsoft Corporation  Enterprise Edition on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 2) I debug the dump file with windbg but could not understand what it means. 000af5d4 7c827789 77e418b6 00000098 00000000 ntdll!KiFastSystemCallRet 000af5d8 77e418b6 00000098 00000000 00000000 ntdll!ZwReadFile+0xc 000af640 7d1f5edb 00000098 000af704 0000021a kernel32!ReadFile+0x16c 000af66c 7d1f5f82 00000098 000af704 0000021a advapi32!ScGetPipeInput+0x2a 000af6e0 7d247667 00000098 000af704 0000021a advapi32!ScDispatcherLoop+0x51 000af924 006ebec2 000af93c 00000000 00000000 advapi32!StartServiceCtrlDispatcherA+0x93 000aff60 0058bf6e 00000001 002a44a8 002a29e8 sqlservr!main+0x31d 000affc0 77e6f23b 00000000 00000000 7ffd5000 sqlservr!mainCRTStartup+0x143 000afff0 00000000 0058be46 00000000 78746341 kernel32

Bugslayer: SUPERASSERT Goes .NET


Those of you who have been reading this old Bugslayer column over the last nine years have branded into your frontal lobe a single word: ASSERT! Anytime you can have the code tell you about a problem instead of having to find it by slaving away with a debugger is a huge timesaver.
