Windows Internals 6th Edition, Part 1
We’re excited to announce that Part 1 of Windows Internals, 6th Edition, is now available for order in hard copy and multiple ebook formats. This edition, like previous ones, makes heavy use of the Sysinternals tools to demonstrate key concepts. It covers Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and the amount of new material required splitting the book into two volumes (Part 2 will be available soon). The first volume includes system concepts; architecture overview; system mechanisms; management mechanisms; processes, threads and jobs; security; and networking.
Testlimit, a demonstration tool used in the Windows Internals books to illustrate resource usage concepts, has minor enhancements including filling memory that it allocates with an identifiable string.
Notmyfault is a tool used in the Windows Internals books to show how common device driver bugs affect a system. This update includes numerous enhancements contributed by Dan Pearson, including new crash types, a revamped user interface, and it reports of the amount of pool it has leaked.
