Some computers can capture a memory image when they stop responding, when performance is extremely slow, or when they crash without providing a crash dump file. After the computer captures the memory image, the computer requires a Microsoft Windows application programming interface (API) to analyze the image with debug tools. This API attaches information that is required for debugging the image. An API for attaching the header information to the memory image is now available. This API is scheduled to be included in Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Microsoft Windows Server 2003.
Update informationA supported feature that modifies the default behavior of the product is available from Microsoft. However, this feature is intended to modify only the behavior that this article describes. Apply this feature only to systems that specifically require it. This feature might receive additional testing.
