Any kdump experts out there?


Hi folks,

I recently configured kdump (at least I think it's configured) on a RedHat box. I set the path in config file to /var/crash (/var has 9 Gb of space) and then I sent a panic to the system causing it to crash.

But no vmcore file appears in /var/crash when the machine comes back.

"#service kdump status" shows that kdump is operational.

Don't know what else to do. The documentation is vague and I'm certain that I need to be faffing about with kernel parameters for a secondary kernel but I don't know what.

Thanks for any help.

Redhat as in RHEL or Redhat as in Fedora ?.

I did look at this (quite) a while back, lemme see if I have any notes (reminder to self).
And shouldn't that be "phaffing" ....

EDIT:Reopen this thread after consideration request from OP. Though originally there seemed to be identical threads (https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...9/#post4743098 ) after re-reading and consider that there is similarity with this thread (Linux-General) does merit standing on it's own.
