WinDbg + SOS Cheat Sheet

I have recently adopted WinDbg (and SOS) as my .NET profiler. This was driven mainly by my on-site PC, which is a piece of crap. The O/S was installed mid 2004, and the machine has "been around the block", so to speak. Attempting to run notepad is something I need to think twice about, let alone your typical profiler.

Anyway, the point is that I've found the combination of WinDbg and SOS to be very powerful, if somewhat difficult to use. When I started using it I looked for a cheat sheet of some kind. I found this one and it was useful, but it's less a sheet and more a web page. I wanted something that would print nicely onto one A4 page so I can pin it up next to my pictures of Monica Bellucci the wife and daughter wherever I travel.

I've adapted the above into document form. You can download it in a number of different formats below.

I love the short summary WinDBG + SOS cheat-sheet you've created here.

Unfortunately, the links for the downloadable PDF/XPS/Docx seems be down.

I cannot find anything on your new site too (kent-boogaart.com).

Can you please consider re-uploading it?
