|DRV274: Driver Debugging & Memory Dump Analysis for Itanium Systems |
This seminar covers kernel mode debugging and memory dump analysis on Itanium platforms.
Intermediate through advanced
Developers of Windows drivers for the Itanium (IPF, ia64) platform.
In this seminar you’ll learn everything you need to know about the Itanium Processor Family (IPF) to debug your drivers and to understand memory dumps from these systems. You will learn how to interpret the commonly used Itanium instructions, how to identify procedure arguments in the register stack, and how to use the Itanium-specific features of the Windows Debugger.
64-bit driver porting checklist
Setting up the debugging environment
Itanium processor architecture and instruction set
Calling sequences and the register stack engine
Windows internals differences
Itanium-specific debugger features
Attendees should be familiar with how to design, code, develop, and debug device drivers for Windows 2000, XP, or Windows 2003, and should be familiar with 64-bit driver porting principles. Although lab examples will be based on WDM drivers, almost all of the principles presented will apply to other driver models (video, NDIS, etc.) as well.
Windows Server 2008, Server 2003, Windows XP
Duration and formats
1 day, lecture and lab
This seminar is only available with labs. Lab problems include memory dump files and deliberately "bugged" drivers, each illustrating a particular aspect of the Itanium debugging environment. All example source files, memory dump files, etc., together with detailed walkthroughs of the crash dump analyses, will be provided to the attendees on CD-R for later study.
|What about porting?|
|This seminar provides an introduction to debugging for the Itanium platform, not porting. If you also need to learn how to port your drivers to the Itanium family, see also DRV264, Windows Drivers Porting & Debugging for 64-bit Platforms. |
