Rhel 4.6 crashes. (Sorry for the crappy title..)
Sorry for the crappy title, but it's just about all I have to work with. I'm testing a program, which fails, and then the system freezes. I've never seen a linux box die so unhelpfully. The program I'm testing either doesn't catch the error or doesn't have time to log anything, and linux doesn't post the usual core dump stuff to screen.
What can I do to get more information from linux about what's going on? I can ssh in to reproduce the crash, so I'm thinking it'd be ideal to have something (hell, multiple somethings) running on the machine's monitor that will output useful info as the system dies.
