Don't Terminate that App!

In "Don't Terminate that App: Four Things to do Before Killing that Rogue Process," Kevin talks about what to do (and what not to do) before killing that hung process.

Seeing Kevin Goodman's name in the Brian's article yesterday reminded me of a great session that he presented at BriForum in Amsterdam.  In "Don't Terminate that App: Four Things to do Before Killing that Rogue Process," Kevin talks about what to do (and what not to do) before killing that hung process.  From the session description:

"When a process goes "rogue" and starts consuming CPU or memory, most admins typically kill the process -- ending all chances of figuring out what went wrong. In this session, Kevin Goodman explains four things to be done prior to terminating a process that will help determine why the process went rogue in the first place and how to prevent it from happening the next time."

So, check this out--it might help you streamline your environment and narrow down the root cause of those pesky hung processes. Click the image below to launch the video:

There is a link to the Zip file containing Suspend.exe under the image, just in case it's not working, here it is again.
