The NT Insider LogoTM
The only publication dedicated entirely to Windows system software development

You can't PAY for something this good...
Well, this isn't necessarily a general philosophy at OSR, but as far as The NT Insider is concerned, it's the real deal. Every other month, you can look forward to reading articles covering all sorts of system software topics. Articles range from general topics like the "NT Drivers 101" series that ran a couple of years back to more specific topics such as "Understanding EvtIoStop in WDF Drivers", "Driver to Driver Communications" or "Writing Bus Drivers".

What else? How about book reviews of subject matter that is pertinent to Windows system software developers and help-wanted pages? We've got that. And don't forget the opportunity to read "Hints from Hector", the Q&A forum for those?nasty technical questions you've been dying to get answers on. Lastly, you really can't afford to miss the prophetic prose of "Peter Pontificates"! Haven't seen The NT Insider? Click Here to review a sample copy in .pdf format?(Adobe Acrobat required).

Below, you'll find listings of recent issues, as well as links to the archives dating back to 1996! If you want a subscription just send a blank email to join-ntinsider@lists.osr.com. We'll let you know when each new issue of The NT Insider is published.

Looking for code associated with articles from The NT Insider? You'll find download links at the top of the article if there's code to be had...

Text for individual articles from The NT Insider is being moved to a temporary home on OSR.COM as we prepare for a major renovation of our community site. Please visit that site for more information./

The NT Insider, Volume 18, Issue 1 , January-February 2011 (Read 8557 times)

The development of a "software-only" kernel mode driver can be used to provide functionality such as monitoring activities or collecting of data from a running system.

The NT Insider, Volume 18, Issue 1 , January-February 2011 (Read 18834 times)

Analyzing user mode state from the kernel debugger appears to have become something of a black art.

Get Low - Collecting Detailed Performance Data with Xperf
he NT Insider, Volume 17, Issue 1 , May -June 2010 (Read 15266 times)

Over the last several years Microsoft has added more and more tracing points to the operating system for use in performance and problem analysis. While Vista collected an impressive amount of information that was available for analysis to the external community, the lukewarm reception of Vista from our customers prevented us from ever really getting a chance to play it. Fortunately, we’ve seen a bigger interest in Windows 7 that has caused us to take a look at the data that is available and how we might be able to use it. To that end, this article will focus on gaining access to these tracing points via the Xperf utility and interpreting the resulting data with the XperfView utility.
