Standalone tools for production debugging

Below are some tools which are standalone and can help in production debugging. Don't confuse this works if we as developers have access to production servers and able to run standalone tools but don't have rights to install applications.

If we have rights to install applications in production server, we can use better tools than these such as Visual studio
  • .Net tools
    • Perfview - to catch exceptions
      • This is useful if we suspect that there are some exceptions eaten in the application and those are causing some other side effects.
  • Database
This is list is growing list. Hopefully I can add more later.
