Tooling shout out: .NET Memory Profiler
To start with, I don’t have any association with them, I got nothing (no money, free license, promise of goodwill or anything else at all) from the SciTech Software (the creators of .NET Memory Profiler.
This tool has been instrumental in figuring out our recent memory issues. I have tried dotTrace Memory, JustTrace and WinDBG, but this tool outshone them all and was able to point us quite quickly to the root cause that we had to deal with, and from there, it was quite easy to reach a solution.
