I'm trying to capture Kernel oops messages on my Centos 5.2 Linux system.
All klogd is logging is oops messages that have minimal information for the segfaults.
Please see below a snapshot of my klogd log file...
It shows segfaults generated by one process "Myapp".
klogd 1.4.1, log source = /proc/kmsg started.
Loaded 29143 symbols from /boot/System.map-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.
Symbols match kernel version 2.6.18.
No module symbols loaded - kernel modules not enabled.
<6>Myapp: segfault at 0000000000000000 rip 000000000042d924 rsp 00007fff91b78230 error 4
<6>Myapp: segfault at 0000000000000000 rip 000000000042d924 rsp 00007fff519f91a0 error 4
From what I see and have read oops messages are more detailed for
seg faults. Please see below...(Which shows more registers, call trace, stack trace etc..)
Could anyone please let me know what I need to do? Is this a klogd or a kernel config?..or something else? Thanks!!
Also, I need to enable symbolic information. The app is being compiled with gcc -g.
First decide whether it's a kernel or kernel module which is giving the oops or a program.
Next you can use ksysoops package to figure it on your own. It it's a kernel or kernel module oops you can send it to the distribution support team. If it's a vanilla kernel that's giving it you can send the oops message to the Linux kernel mailing list.
