Dina Goldshtein: Automate Your Dumps - Level: 200

Developer, Level: 200

When an application crashes rarely, developers can try to reproduce the problem, use logs to figure out what happened, or analyze the crash dumps. Dissecting a crash dump can provide information on the exception that occurred, the state of the threads, synchronization mechanisms, and more. However, manual analysis takes time and when your application crashes dozens of times a day, it’s not realistic to spend all of the developers’ time on analysis. A full automation would be perfect, or at least a triage of the crashes into groups: by component, or any other criterion. In this session we will see how we can automate .NET crash analysis on both Windows and Linux, and how to perform in-depth analysis (when necessary).
