I’ve said it time and time again, Sysinternals is one of the best names in the IT industry, without it, I wouldn’t be the tech I am today. With that said, there are some program and blog updates from the 16th of this month that I wanted to make sure got some extra attention.
Process Explorer is at v15. The unique capabilities of Process Explorer make it useful for tracking down DLL-version problems or handle leaks, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work.
ProcDump is at v4 now. ProcDump is a command-line utility whose primary purpose is monitoring an application for CPU spikes and generating crash dumps during a spike that an administrator or developer can use to determine the cause of the spike.
Mark, one of the sysinternal developers, added a blog where he was trying to play Portal 2, he used his own utilities to find what was causing the issue.
