Debugging a stackexchange memory leak while transitioning to .NET Core: by @Nick_Craver

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/14

Cool thread with steps (windbg) tooling and graphs: this is how you approach problem solving.

Easiest to read: [WayBack] Thread by @Nick_Craver: “Well hello there memory leak…let’s see what you are. It’s times when I type !dumpheap without an argument that cals. Alrighty, let’s see what these little guys are: Quite a bit of repetition in here – let’s root some of the […]”

Twitter thread below the fold.

[WayBackNick Craver on Twitter: “So let’s form our dictionary in batches EF Core will load, like this. We can lower our SQL roundtrips to n / 1000 + relevant changes. It’s more SQL trips than our original 1, but we aren’t needlessly loading a million users into memory. We load about 0.3% of that instead.…”

A great tip from [WayBack] Hi, need help regarding Datasnap. How to know the name of the methods called by client in delphi datasnap server? – sujansiddhi – Google+ that I needed a few months ago:

I’m harvesting credit card numbers and passwords from your site. Here’s how.

Below is one of the reasons I try to stay on the back-end side of things. Those are complex enough to focus on for me.

[WayBackI’m harvesting credit card numbers and passwords from your site. Here’s how.

It basically comes down to:

  • anything in the same page has access to anything happening on that page.
  • be careful when using npm and ad networks.
  • perform security operations in a light-weight iframe that is scrutinized.

The source of any npm package might be different from the source you find in a the underlying repository. This recursively holds for all the other npmit pulls in.
