Episode 7, Windows Memory Architecture. Performance Series.
In episode 7 we’ll start talking about “Fake Memory” as I’ve been eluding to for several episodes. We cover the microkernel memory architecture of 32 and 64 bit operating systems, the Virtual Memory Manager, and why user mode processes sometimes crash when they exceed it. We cover this in a whiteboarding session and then move into a demo of an actual application crash, and show what a typical crash looks like in Perfmon.
