linux crash log


where does linux specifically stores memory dump in case of kernel panic? Is there a program that i could set up in the background that will constantly update, so that in the case of system freeze or shutdown i could pinpoint the exact time and cause of the crash. Not sure if its any similar to freeBSD.
I'm running fedora btw.
