Level: Intermediate Advanced

Sami Laiho


Senior Technical Fellow


Have you ever wondered if Windows Pagefile settings should be changed or how they actually work? Have you ever wondered what the values in Task Manager actually mean – like Paged Pool, Working Set or Free memory? Do you know how a file actually gets cached and finally written to the disk or how threads communicate with each other? Have you ever wondered what Mutexes or Semaphores in Process Explorer really mean? These are some examples of the aspects of Windows Sami Laiho teaches in his Windows Internals class around the world. Now you have a great opportunity to attend this bootcamp style one day version of this globally awarded four day class! When faced with an unknown problem to solve it's easier to see what's wrong when you know what's not. Every troubleshooter benefits from knowing how Windows is actually built!

You will learn:

  • How the Windows core kernel and subsystems really work
  • How Windows memory manager works
  • About best practices on how to configure performance settings without compromising stability and manageability
