What is kernel data image ?

by andries_burger In reply to What is kernel data image ...

Sunil,
'Kernel Data Image' refers to the data, used by the kernel, that was in memory at the time that the 'capture' event took place. I presume you have had a UNIX systems crash, and now have this 'kernel data image' stuck either on a swap device or copied to a tape. You can use the utility 'crash' to analyse this dump, to determine exactly which process was running, and the cause of the crash. Mind you, it does require a lot of knowledge about the internal working of the UNIX OS. For a general book on the UNIX kernel, that can be applied to most UNIX's read 'The Magic Garden Explained'.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to email me, and I will answer any questions you may have.
