    Debugging Script: Dumping out ASP.NET Session Contents

    • 18 Comments
    In my last post I wrote a script to dump out all the ASP.NET requests on the heap. Since one of the most common memory issues I encounter is too much cache or session state I figured that showing you how to retreive session data would be good. A word of caution, since this script uses !dumpheap (to dump out the objects on the heap) and !objsize (to figure out the size of an object including the size of its membervariables) it may take a long time to execute if you have a very large dump, which...

It will basically be a presentation on things to avoid in order to not run into some of the most common hangs/perf issues, memory issues, crashes and exceptions and for good measure I am planning to throw in some windbg/sos...
