Memory Management with Clint Huffman

About Show #338

Richard chats with Clint Huffman about memory management in Windows. But first a quick conversation about the state of affairs these days, including Clint's work on the Windows Performance Field Guide, due to be published in early 2014. Clint runs down the various elements that matter about memory, the effects of running 32 bit apps in a 64 bit OS and more. And along the way, he mentions lots of great resources, including the PFE Performance Guide, the Windows Performance Toolkit and a knowledge base article on How to Use Poolmon. Check 'em out!

Originally from Dayton, OH. Clint joined Microsoft in 1999 supporting web technologies, Microsoft load testing tools, and later worked as a Testing Consultant helping people with load testing at the Microsoft Services Labs. There he found a passion for solving Windows performance issues. In 2006, he joined Microsoft Premier Field Engineering (PFE) to take on BizTalk performance issues only to find that most issues could be diagnosed by analyzing operating system resources. Some may say that performance analysis of Windows is more of an art than a science. Well, Clint strives to make it as much of a science as possible and to bring it to the masses. Clint is probably best known for the Performance Analysis of Logs (PAL) tool, which simplifies the analysis of performance monitor logs. He is an author of many of the recent BizTalk performance guides on MSDN and recently spoke at Tech Ed 2008 on BizTalk performance analysis.
