Memory Subsystem and Paging

Presenter: This video is led by Tim Mangan, founder of TMurgent Technologies.  It was recorded at briforum 2006 in Darmstadt, Germany. The video, slides, and accompanying software are [[[ CURRENTLY MISSING FROM THE BRIFORUM SITE - We are aware and are working on it ]]].

Recorded in April 2006, these two videos demonstrates a number of applications written to cause specific performance problems. We explore how to diagnose the problem and use this to dive deep to explain how the operating system works.

Part 2 deals with Memory issues. We explore how the memory subsystem works inside the OS kernel. Concepts such "Virtual versus Process Memory", "Working Sets", the "Balance Manager" are explained. How "Paging" works is fully exposed, including an understanding of good and bad paging. We explore what dll rebasing is and what third party products do to help improve memory usage.

If you visit the briforum site, you may also download the PPT slides from this session.
