Feedback form is now closed.
Kernel crash dumps are a possibility to investigate kernel problems, which can be used even by non-experts to collect all the available information about the problem. This allows a later investigation of the issue by providing the crash dump to a Linux distributor or to a Linux kernel expert. Often it makes it unnecessary to reproduce the problem since all the necessary information is already contained in the crash dump. A crash dump is a complete memory image of the system at the time of the crash, comparable to a core dump of an user space program.

This session is designed to cover the basics of kdump service configuration on RHEL system and analyzing the kernel crash dump captured at the time of kernel panic or hang to determine the root cause.
