Windows Logs

I have an application that hungs up at a specific time.
I checked all the logs, Applications logs, system logs and there is no error or warning event log.

I am not sure if windows is able to log every event related to hardware or software issue.

Thanks

Hi jskfan,

Is your app a hosted / web app? If it is, have you checked the server's event log that hosts the application?

Windows logs, do not log hardware errors. So, when you have physical functionality problem like RAM, HDD or other hardware parts, they are not reported within Windows logs. You need for that 3rd party diagnostic tools, sorry

This app problem looks like memory. You may check that using some free tools

Would it possible to give us the specification abou the application like web or local app? While the app hungs open the task manager goto processes and sort by memory utilization to see whether your app is hung becoz over utilization of memory...
