Microsoft's Symbol Server has been (once again) extremely slow this week. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Continued slow symbol server performance is highly disruptive to institutions which need to perform frequent analysis of large numbers of processes in a test environment and/or large numbers of crash dumps from a wide variety of operating systems / configurations. Previous suggestions to periodically download the entire MS symbol database onto a local symbol servers is both slow and impractical since MS components are updated (via new additions, patches, hot fixes, etc.) at higher frequencies than the standalone download is updated.  In addition, we've found that the standalone download has scattered gaps where symbols are missing.  The symbol server system needs to be at least as reliable as other Microsoft web services.
